We're all going on a summer holiday...

Just stopping in here briefly  to say that some of us are on holiday, and some of us are working, but we are sharing it round. Aiming to finish my job list in the vineyard tomorrow, and then I'll be able to pay some much needed attention to rest of the garden. In the meantime I thought I'd leave you with a photo of items waiting to be packed for the beach house. We normally take our standard 'own' supplies - eggs, wine, honey, olive oil, as well as picking as much garden produce as ready, but this is the first year we took a bunch of bananas.

They were then hung up the garage, which proved to be quite a hot place so they all ripened at once, which necessitated the making of banana cakes, and even a banoffee pie (thanks C & K). Rainy days are good for baking, especially when you are on holiday.
