Bounty from the garden
The weather may be dry but the vegetable garden is producing abundantly. Yesterday I harvested so many tomatoes that I had to get creative with cooking (still leaving plenty to eat raw or as bruschetta)
We now have 6 jars of tomato jam, 7 jars of green tomato chutney, 2 large bottle of fresh tomato sauce made with masses of basil, thyme and oregano and then, there’s the pickled cucumbers – a huge favourite in this family. Last year we almost ran out so this year planted many more cucumbers which we’re now harvesting and pickling.
A sample of a day’s harvest, makes me smile!
Our first grapes – most eaten but some made into grape jam
