come again another day (please).
The cold, wet weather and distinct lack of sunshine has affected the crops on the farm and harvest is predicted to be at least a week late this year. I was forbidden from applying for Olympic tickets in the second week as it was bound to clash with harvest, but that’s looking more unlikely by the day.
The council have usually mown the footpaths by July, but haven’t done so yet (perhaps council cutbacks have meant no cutting back) and the wet weather has resulted in some long grass and muddy patches so people are still walking the paths wearing wellies. In the middle of July. Let’s hope we have some sunshine soon to dry things up a bit and ripen the crops, especially as the school summer holidays are starting.
