We popped out to the lottie and hauled in yet more beans, courgettes, toms and a gherkin. The beans are doing very well this year so far, so well that each processing means a couple of extra hours work. We have three types of climbers this ear and we are doing them all separately. In this first foto you can see where the term, “a mess ‘o beans” comes from. A quick look in the pantry, on the freezer door shows what we have put up so far this year. Finally, a fresh bite of sliced Mountain Magic toms with a sprinkling of salt together with Norwegian cheese cubes. Oh, and the courgettes? Like a jet, they have flown away to the Food Bank. Today it has been rainy, the lottie desperately needed the rain. It is good to be able to spend more time on here.
