Oh yes, Iet's see the new equine companion 


I've managed to ram 1.5lb of raspberries (picked this morning) into the freezer, but only by removing some pork belly and lamb shanks ... they'll thaw in the fridge and we'll have the pork tomorrow and the lam shanks on Saturday ........  now I'm prepping another couple of pounds of runners and will have to ram some of them in there somehow ...

Hosta   glad you had a better night.  Request for raspberries noted ... I will try to remember .. please feel free to remind me 


Obs ... we still have lots of jam from last year ... we don't eat much of it and when we moved son I noted a few jars of 'Mum's jam' and 'Mum's chutney' in the cupboard that haven't been eaten ... now he's dashing around the globe his eating patterns have changed.  I tend to do most preserving alternate years, otherwise we'll need a bigger garage ... although OH does plough through the cucumber pickle at a rate of knots ... I will have to make some more of that before too long.

This'd get rid of a few ... https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/11695/raspberry-bakewell-cake ... I could take a big wedge or three up to the farm shop for OH and colleagues ... they're keen on Bakewells up there

Morning Chicky, Fairy, Clari .... And anyone I've missed or who come along later ... Love watching deer, as long as they're not in my garden or causing road accidents ...


anyone want some raspberries? Freezers crammed full and I really don't have time for making jam before we go away (did I mention we're going on holiday??? )


we might just have to eat puddings instead of main courses this week ...

Sweet peas

Hello 


That's all very puzzling. When did you sow them? Can you show us some photos of your sweet peas so we can look for clues ... 


Start with the camera icon. If pics don't upload try reducing the size.
