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


  1. So productive! Love it...Great pics too

  2. What a fabulous blog this is, I am now following it so I will pop back often. Your photo's are lovely and you are such a busy person, what with the allotment and all your crafts. I think we have a lot in common as I also crochet and love cooking. I do envy you your chickens, I would love to keep some but can't commit to the time they need.

  3. Your allotment produce is looking wonderful, colourful in fact. Iadmire all your homemade preserves.
    I envy that you have your own eggs too, I'd liek to get some chicks of my own one-day when I get the space.
