Keeping up

I think my title should read more like ‘Not Particularly Keeping Up’
Anyway, cooked another bucket of plums, still to depip. Took a bag of plums and some eggs to Ruby (flying visit)
Had to cook the raspberries and spent ages deseeding them… I can’t ‘mooley’ them as the seeds just go through.
So I have to sieve by hand. That takes longer than it should!! But I am sadly & tragically down to one raspberry chocolate left. So I want to make some more raspberry leather and fix that problem!!
I filled the space in the fridge that the raspberries were in… with more raspberries! Have you ever picked raspberries out of slightly wild patches?? Its not a quick process!

As you can see, I brought my garlic in and hung it up in the library. The library smells pretty amazing now!!

Mostly I am not able to indulge in new projects as pretty much all my time is taken up with the essentials – watering, picking, cooking etc.
Its really great stocking up on food again and its a fabulous time even though it gets a bit relentless.

Hope your week is going along swimmingly!

  1. Hi Lisa – That picture of all that wonderful fresh food made my mouth water. We are in the winter doldrums here in USA and there is nothing fresh out of the garden. Even Florida had freezing weather. It is supposed to warm up for a few days and then back down again but not like it was last week. Even with the freeze we had, my strawberry plants seem to have made it through. The thaw will tell the tale. Thanks for all the updates on the garden.

  2. Dear Lisa all your beautiful bounty is amazing!! I know you
    And others will enjoy the FRUITS of your labor. Keep up the good work!!!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

    1. Hi Linda! Thanks! Its so enjoyable getting all this food. I had another day on my feet, but a luuurvely dinner pretty much straight from the garden! πŸ™‚

  3. When I first glanced at that picture I thought it was some type of art installation. Until I realized it was your garlic drying😊.
