Always wear a hat in the sun. Use sun cream. And make sure you’ve got some drinks with you! It’s basic advice like this that stops you getting sun stroke!

Sit in the shade and don’t garden during the hottest hours usually 12-2pm.

Water the plants and water yourself too!

This week on the allotment has been glorious apart from the few drops of rain that have threatened.

Picked lots of strawberries! And raspberries! And some salad leaves! Peas are nearly ready and the weeds are making a strong come back!

Made sure our water barrels by the greenhouse can collect water when it rains !
