Fruit Bonanaza

 After two weeks of neglect we were really pleased to arrive back to a fruit bonanza.  The strawberries had started cropping before we set off on holiday so I was expecting the harvest to be over by the time we got back. In fact they held on and it was one of the raspberries that was threatening to turn. 

First picking
 Of course in my anxiety I have managed to leave my camera behind on each visit to the plot recently! 

Second picking

And we've had a third picking.  Yet to tackle the thorny gooseberries. 

So now it's redcurrant jelly, Strawberry and raspberry jam time


  1. Snap - it's a hard life bit someone has to do it.

  2. Good stuff the soft fruit has been fantastic this year, loads of jam!
