It has been a busy lately, we have busily been processing our veg and fruit for the coming year. Perhaps you recall last week when we gave the toms got another haircut...in preparation for the coming ripening period. Most of the extra branches and all suckers were removed leaving a sad-looking denuded stems. Now the toms can give all their energy into producing fruits and not foliage. The marigolds also had their heads lopped-off. Last week's ravaging: Today's presentation: The pomodori's are beginning to colour-up...so we are already counting our empty sauce- concentrate jars in the pantry. The courgettes are really coming into their own. Look at this branch--eight fruits! Some more blueberries are ready for the picking. Then one of our seasonal high-points---ripened sweetcorn: That was our lunch today. Yummmmmm... Whilst roaming over the lottie complex, I saw that some folks had really tidy ways of "curing" their onions. And this one: Well, that was about it this time. It seems as if we have been catching-up the entire season so far. We still have a lot more growing, but our pantry and freezer are nearing capacity. There is still time, but we shall have to find room for the parsnip, sprouts and leeks that still have to come. We continue to have beans and courgettes, but they will go to neighbours and the Food Bank.
