What to do with your produce

Posted: 02/09/2013 at 11:44

i have made apple sauce and pies.

frozen most of the veg.. peas/runners/carrots but have also given away loads of runner beans to the neigbhours and got some gorgeous big fat black cherries in return for some..

eaten the salad stuffs but did give some celery away to next door as she loves it also..

and those apples looks delicious flowering rose.. making my mouth water.

i am waiting for my bramblys to fill out.. thou they are dropping at the mo as we have not had any rain for months still.. hosing the garden each eve now for last few days as all 6 water butts are empty again for the 5 time this year..

 love them and what a surprise they were too.

Thinking ahead

i will also let more things grow where they are first.. then removed what i dont want.. did this last year and i also got some nice little surprises.

i ahve few plants that are in the wrong place.. need shade and not sun.

put most of all next year my new path will be finished (fingers crossed) and i will ahve nice big new borders to fill... and that will be lots of moving around and filling up have some plants ready already:-

 on the vetegable side of it i will not plant so many runner beans... been overloaded with them this year.. and i will plant many more peas and carrots instead and try some french beans. we will not be doing broccoli again as fed up with the butterflies and their eggs this year has been so time consuming.

i will try and sow my seeds earlier as they didnt do so well this year.. my cosmos have been nothing really.

and with all the seeds i hope to get in the swap.. i will ahve lots new plants to work with also.
