Latest knits and lots of chutney :)

These two are the latest knits and we’re still carrying on with the purple and green theme it seems.

In the polytunnel the tomatoes are ripening as fast as I can roast them and make chutney with them.

You can never have too many empty, clean jam jars.

Meanwhile, we’re picking other bits here and there.

20170902_131141 The corn is helping by ripening one cob at a time so I can keep pace with them. I’m freezing a bag of podded haricot beans every day and thankfully the courgettes have eased off, finally. The thornless blackberry bush I planted a couple of years ago has been wonderfully productive this year. It’s still small but has produced a large punnet every day for the last two weeks.  We’re all a bit ‘crumbled’ out now since we have lots of apples too. I’m having to invest in another freezer this week. I’ve run out of space now and I would make and store so much more if I had one..

Last week, following Monty’s advice, we sowed turnip seeds and this afternoon Joe and I planted 5o baby onions and a few more leeks.

Hope you’re enjoying the same sunny weather where you are 🙂 x

  1. The purple and green knits are just beautiful, I do love that combo and I really like the addition of other shades into the mix. How I envy you your self sufficiency with all that lovely chutney and freezer food.

  2. I just dressed my girl in her green and purple cardi bought at Celebration ❤
    You are certainly busy on that allotment, when do you find time to knit? 🙂
