August randomness.

We've been so busy planting, harvesting, watering, weeding & preserving that my blog has been neglected so here's a quick catch up in pictures.

caterpillar control, I never realised that shield bugs like to munch caterpillars.

My 2 hens are in moult but they are such good girls that I'm still averaging 9/10 eggs a week.

The allotment has also kept me in flowers through the summer.

Runner bean, mango,coconut & Indian spice
Sweet & sour cucumber pickle, Rhubarb & curry chutney, Rhubarb & ginger jam.
Greengage jam, not grown by me but a bargain find.

Blackberry jam.
Bread & butter sandwich pickle
