Summer pudding, first time I've made this
Most of the fruit was home grown,
just added a few purchased strawberries
perfect with ice cream and clotted cream
This mornings harvest
I am so pleased to have gooseberries, these are the first fruit for years, my bushes have been attacked by sawfly each spring, this year I had to resort to a chemical spray, which I could only use early before the fruit formed. Hubby will decide how to use these, I don't like them. I also picked the last of the blackcurrants, another fruit I don't like, this is my second picking, again not a huge harvest, but much better than last year. The blueberries are ongoing, the two bushes are full of berries which need to ripen.
From the greenhouse
I am going to try a fridge pickle for the cucumbers, I will pass one on to daughter, the yellow tomatoes are giving me a steady crop.
On the left is my plant outside the green house
on the right the bush inside, both full of fruits.
This is the best crop of peppers for ages
again I don't eat these,
but once ripe I will dry them for use through out the winter months.
Another good read
I have finished reading Wilde Like me, first book from author Louise Penland, I not sure if I would race out and get another one by her.
Sport on TV yesterday was great, tennis I loved, but was miffed when BBC decided to switch from Nadal match to show the ladies No 1 seed losing her match, it was at the point of Nadal serving for the match!!
We both sat and watched England play, it's so good to see a young team and their Manager Gareth Southgate do so well. It's good to see a manager who is all about the team and not full of Bull sh*t as many have been before him.
