How good is that GWRS Ever so pleased for you
Strawberry conserve was a bit of a disaster, whilst waiting for it to reach setting point I flicked through some cook books and found one which said be mindful not to boil to long as this reduces the pectrin, me thinks I boiled to long.
I'm still picking strawberries, had my first blueberries from back garden yesterday eaten from the bush before the birds got to them as there were so few, it's a new bush though and there's always next yr's bumper harvest to look forward to.
Went to the plot yesterday to pick/harvest and water GH. Picking strawberries, rubarb, spinach, chard, swede, globe artichokes, mangetout, red lettuce, selection of herbs and nasturgium flowers for salads.
Pea's/sugar snap not quite ready. French/runner beans begining to reach the top of their supports so nipped some out. Isn't it strange how they wrap themselves around supports in the same clockwise direction.
Happy harvesting everyone
