Summer bounty

We have cleared the sugar snaps out of the poly to make room for the tomatoes. We fed the insects we found on them to the chickens and the shoots to the rabbits. We are getting some courgettes now which is great. I made a big veggi lasagne last night with our own courgettes, sugar snaps, onions and eggs.

Also the rasberries are going mad. We are getting about 0.5 kg a day. We have flash frozen a load. I have made about 6 jars of jam. Yesterday I blended a load and then sieved out the pips (which went to the chickens), the result was a nice smooth juice which when mixed with a bit of apple juice and water makes a really nice breakfast juice. I am going to try and make enough to freeze a few bottles.
