    Morning clickers :-) Shopping at Lidl – doesn’t it come around quickly? :bad: We had bats flying around at about 9.30pm and heard a tawny about 1 a.m. Tiny bit of rain last night – proper showers tomorrow hopefully as they’re in the forecast. Picked some rasps already this morning, as well as two Gardener’s Delights and a few, a very few mangetouts. Hope you all have a good day :-)

      Morning Jane. Good to be picking produce now and glad the toms are ripening. Wiz to Lidl and back and you can go out to play before tomorrow’s rain. I haven’t seen bats for ages which leads me to think that they have been evicted from the loft of a nearby cottage where I believe they were roosting. Did the tawny wake you up?

      • Morning Cilla :-) I was already awake – unfortunately it didn’t hang around for long – I love listening to them. I think the bats come over from the church, which isn’t in use much because it needs roof work apparently.

          We have bats in the church and have sheets down to catch the poo!

    • Morning Jane, the weeks are flying by :confused: Lucky you with spotting the bats, I haven’t seen ours for a while and I’d LOVE to have an owl about. :love: Sounds like your production is kicking off – such a lovely time of year for fruit and veg. :good: Enjoy your day – after Lidl. ;-)

      • Morning Karen :-) so good to have the fruit and the toms are always worth the wait :good: Have a lovely day yourself :-)
