We grow our own food in a suburban village in the North East of England. Follow us as we keep up the battle to be self-sufficient.

Busy, busy busy recently. The result -lots of soft fruit still to pick. I watched as a blackbird helped herself to my redcurrants yesterday and decided we could not wait any longer to pick them. A bucketful later and the blackbird was forced to look elsewhere for her supper. I have some to pick as well on Dad's allotment today. Once that's done, I'll be making jelly and then adding the resulting pulp into a mix of soft fruits to make summer fruit jam.
