Never been a fan of wasps but I try to tolerate them - but as I was stung last week and now they are eating Amy's wasps, they are not one my favourite's at the mo.

It did Amy, little devil. I disturbed a nest when I was clearing the bank of the brook - didnt realise it until it snook up behind me, could have been worse as there were lots of them. John sprayed the Waspeze on my arm, was sore and itched for days but I'm fine now :-))

Tony disturbed a nest of them last year in the compost bin , he came running in covered in them and had been stung several times , he dosn,t like them anymore either ... LOL...

I tried to count my peaches yesterday and gave up at 80 , really there ,s lots of them , some of them might not rippen as I should have thinned them out more but I was so reluctant to waste any ...

I,m off to bed now , I pulled my back at the weekend it,s been so painful , we should be going to Cambridge tomorrow 'till Friday , so must get rested .. x

Hi Amy, 80!!! That is amazing, how wonderful.
Hope your back is OK - enjoy Cambridge and all those memories.
