The End of August - 31 August 2010
  The BBC's promise of rain has yet to materialise, and I have been without water for two days. I should point out that this is not a rare occurence in Bulgaria, and normally I would not even mention it. However this month I have been without water for 10 days in total and since it hasn't rained my crops are not coping well.

My second lot of beans have shown themselves, they really do grow very quickly. They are also in need of water. I am planning a water collection and storage device for next year, as we get a metre of snow every winter so just need to collect and store it. Swimming pool perhaps?

New beans coming through!

I have also been busy making repairs to the roof for when the weather turns colder. Or rather I should say I offered Osman a bottle of Rakia to get on my roof and fill in a few cracks that had appeared this year. He weighs less than 50Kg I don't!

Osamn on The Roof!

I have just picked todays peppers and found an aubergine in the midst. The typical recipe for aubergines here is to stuff them and bake them and has the rather nice name of 'exploding Imam'. It is too hot to bake anything at the moment though so this Aubergine will get put on a barbeque in the coming days.

Fresh From the Garden!

See you all in September!
