I usually freeze a fair bit of fruit, Raspberries went in this year, along with blackberries, have some apples knocking around but they are fine for now, will freeze them if needed later. This year I learned you can freeze bananas, some reason I thought you couldn't, Haven't yet though. Not home gro...
I've still got jam from 2013, one jar open, another waiting in the cupboard. So no jam making this year for me, probably anyway :)
I will probably make cordial again though (blackberry).
Just been and had a quick scout to check the blackberries by us. Just over a kilo in 10 minutes or so picking. Just checked Mysupermarket and T*sco B'berries are about a quid for 100g!

Not unreasonable future thinking at all. Could even come down to simple stuff like having several batteries, and switching between them. At least one charging while another is depleting X4 and you could maybe drive all day with no stopping in theory. Or by then Individual ownership may not be so com...

Initially it was just a piece of junk waiting for the tip, but it filled wit...
It's one of the few programs I do watch. Have read the books to date as well (started the book series before the tv series came out). Books are quite complex, as is the program, so many lives and characters to follow. There are a couple of games, but the best by far is the Telltale Games one (curren...
If you do collect some and grow it up ..... taddies in the pond used to love the fish food, though there is also a lot of natural food in there too. Chickens love frog taddies, NoM! my girls cleared a pond, and ate most of the adults too :( Had toadpoles only this year, no idea if any survived the l...
Not experienced with many herbs, but the rosemary, I just used to snip off what I needed rather than dry any, an all year round, green plant, non-deciduous is it?
