Does anyone make their own brine pickles? I am mad for them. Ever since I first pickled some (admittedly) shop-bought carrots in brine, I can't stop making them! They are amazingly healthy too, in spite of the scare stories about salt. They're known as lacto-fermented foods, and as such extremely good for you. Anyone keen on a recipe? (Or two? Or three? Or more??)

I'm very new to this allotment / home growing stuff

Yesterday I made rhubarb crumble muffins, and today I've done rhubarb and plum crumble. Both are/were lovely!

Tomorrow I'm going to make beetroot, carrot and potato cakes to go with Sunday dinner.

I'm going to have to take regular days off work for all the baking and cooking when the season is in full flow next year!

With last years tomatoes and garlic, I roasted them in the oven with some olive oil, added some peppers or chillies to various batches then blitzed it all down for pasta sauce. I did that in September and I still have loads in the freezer. Doesn't look like such a good tomato harvest this year though
