It's soooo hot. I nearly got heatstroke, just from going to the allotment and dosing the hens with Flubenvetted grapes.
When I got back, I sat inside and drank lots of water. And then, at DH's suggestion, I made some Garlic Scape pesto. There's a tub full of layers in the freezer now, and I can't taste anything. I scraped the bowl and put the scrapings on a piece of Ryvita. It tasted really fresh and garlicky in a very green sort of way. Now I can't taste anything, despite repeated teeth brushing.
The chickens don't like the heat. The Littlees are hiding under a rosemary bush. The Bigees are resting under some shrubs. Tilda is in the Go run, which has a shade over the top. I popped out to check she was OK, and she looked uncomfortable. So, despite the heat, I went into the back of the shed, rummaged around, and came out with a load of greenhouse shading.
Firstly, I replaced the normal cover from the Littlees cube with a piece. I'd obviously used it before, as it was the right size, it had a section cut out for the side door, and it was complete with Klingons and hooks.
Next, I put a piece on part of the Bigees' Cube run. And then I found another piece which I put on Tilda's run.
I've got another sheet of it, but no Klingons. I might try foldback clips. But I need a sit down in the shade first.
