There is lots of meadowsweet around this year so I picked some to try making tea with it. It says the leaves and flowers make a mild though rather woody tasting tea that combines well with spices.

You can add honey and cinnamon to improve taste and soothe sore throats. Might be useful in the winter!

The peaches are ripening nicely in the greenhouse. Looking forward to trying them though we never get very many and they have to be picked at just the right moment as they go over fast.
