Our days, at present, revolve around harvesting the veg and preparing it either for cooking, freezing, pickling or making into chutney. Enjoyable but at times it can seem never ending. The empty jars on the shelves in the utility room are rapidly being replaced by newly filled ones.
The freezer is filling up at an alarming rate, considering we will need space for three lambs in a months time.
Garden and hedgerow fruit will shortly be ready. The plums are changing colour, the apples ripening and the elderberries and blackberries are turning black. Time for jam making and yet more chutney.
