Discoveries in the freezer

A good piece of advice: do an occasional check on the contents of the freezer. It's interesting what you find. I did a sort through yesterday and found bags of sloes, raspberries, rhubarb, gooseberries, lemon skins and apple. As a result, I've now made 14 jars of rhubarb, gooseberry and apple jam and 7 of raspberry and apple. Simmering away in my preserving pan at the moment are apple cores and peel, sloes and lemon. They are on their way to being sloe jelly. Meanwhile, the nettle flan I took out of the freezer will be used for dinner tomorrow evening. Tonight we are having bacon butties, to use up a bit more of our Tamworth pig.

Lib Dem-controlled Watford council in Hertfordshire wants to allow construction companies take over the Farm Terrace Allotments to build commercial buildings and flats on the site. The Tory MP of Watford also has put all his weight behind this, calling himself “possessed man” :

This can put a precedent to build over more allotment sites all over the country where greedy developers are after to profits from the lands within the towns.
Claire, will you please support our effort to save the Farm Terrace Allotments?

We are organising an event this Sunday February 10th, 10-12:30.
