Summer is coming fast, the trees and shrubs are in full leaf and apple blossom, albeit later this year, is emerging. Ribadesella and the other resorts are sprucing up their act getting ready for the tourists and day trippers. A few visitors planned over the coming months. Thinking about a holiday later in the year. Weather mixed but generally pleasant and warm. Lots to do now the Garage/workshop is almost finshed - landscaping, building steps, pond, patio, drive, beds, ........bring shovel.

Spending increasing amounts of time in the garden now with seedlings, young plants and general garden maintenance. Luis has been working hard ensuring our year round supply of vegetables and fruit. Wait for it...including: apples, pears, cherries, lettuce x 4 types, spring onion, onions (300), sugar snap peas, asparagus pea, aubergines, peppers x 2 types, beetroot, carrots, sweetcorn, potatoes, jerusalem artichokes, cauliflower, brocolli, pumpkin, courgettes, cucumbers, tomatoes and beans......PHEW.
The weather is slow to improve but never-the-less pleasant most of the time. The garage/workshop build is progressing well and we are looking forward to having the space.
Hope everyone is well....keep in touch.
