The elderflowers are finally finished, but we eagerly await the berries, and I always feel that when the elderflowers are gone, that the summer is coming to an end. But then we head to the fruit cage to see what’s ripe…
The yellow raspberries are really just for eating as there are not enough, not so the gooseberries, which are now ready to pick-
We picked almost 4 kilos, and have made jam (email me if you want to buy a jar!). The rest possibly frozen, although I did make one sneaky pie.
And now we are patiently waiting on the redcurrants and blackcurrants so we can make cordial. Can’t wait. I can almost hear the Vitamin C growing as I type. The first thing my father in law always makes is redcurrant cheesecake, and this years first one was pretty damned good.
And soon we’ll have tomatoes to look forward to. I LOVE homegrown tomatoes
