It's been a busy evening, I've made tomato and chilli sauce, cooked up a big pan of runner beans, blanched and frozen a big batch of beans and made two jars of gherkin pickles! Phew.
So it's a v quick round up from me, a good week again
|Sorry, squished photo! Tuesday on the allot including most of my hazel nuts, a first for me this year. They came away lightly without needing to pull too much.|
|Mid week from the back garden, nice beans|
|Saturday from the garden, more beans n toms|
|Saturday from the plot, last of the plums and hazels. Can you spot the 3-eyed alien?|
Today I've picked more from the plot but didn't get a photo, 3 courgettes, some chard, big bag of potatoes (still lots more to dig, realised the other day I hadn't been taking pics of them), a gherkin and cuke (possibly the last), a few rasps. Also another load of beans from the back garden. As we now have our new freezer (yes!) I took the opportunity to sort some beans to freeze as mentioned above.
I also intended to start sorting my potatoes into keepers and user-uppers but didn't get time so that will have to wait. They're in bags in a big cardboard box in a dark spot in the house, they'll go in the shed eventually.
