Happy Birthday Head Gardner – have an allotment filled pie.
Gooseberries, rhubarb and raspberries.
Save some for us please!
Blogging (and the allotment) is a bit like buses! Today this is my third blog when sometimes we can go for weeks.
So the jam is thicker than it was but decidedly still runny! panic! In our house any crisis, question or query ultimately means trawling Google and the wide ranging help it can provide!
So I thought jam was hard to make but we have found it fun and fairly easy….saying that the proof is in the pudding. We have 13 differing size jars from 2kg of fruit and 1.7kg more to jam but not enough jars with seal buttons left.
Busy day at the allotment. After doing some reading around we decided to pick the gooseberries. We are going to make jam so they seemed perfect for that. Head gardener decided to tackle some weeding and both allotment kids came along. Even reluctant digger joined in – filling water bottles and weeding.

I have an allotment, I grow vegetables and I attempt to cook them. I report back on the process (or lack thereof).
