whirlwind!

That has been today!!
Boiling beetroot, finishing juicing pears, apples and red wine grapes for juice (about eight pints), making pear with fennel chutney, and baking a cake!!
All this and two big washes (dried on the line too!) and unpacking the kiln! (pictures next week)

I've brought the onions in from the green house ready to be tidied, put in trays and stacked in the larder. With any luck someone else might do that, as I'm off to a potters meeting tomorrow, then to friends in Pembrokeshire, then Northwards to see Daughter and family!!

So the Carpenter and the Oily One can look after the Cat and the house for four days...I'm sure they'll survive!!

Pear & Fennel chutney sounds good. Pear has got to be one of the best chutnies, great texture & flavour. we haven't made any yet this year but have loads from last year left over, so won't go short! Have a great weekend travelling the Principality. You'll just have to struggle to avoid the Welsh Rugger fans today on this, their big day!

The chutney sounds great. Care to share the recipe?

Washing dried on the line is always good. I refuse to have a drier. Don't need one throughout the summer months here in Oz. In the winter it all goes up on the ceiling hoist by the fie and is dry by the morning.
