Where does the time go?

I'll tell you where the time goes at this time of year, it's picking everything and trying to keep on top of the weeds! This is some of what I've picked in the last few days:

Which features radish, lettuce, potatoes, peas, broad beans, onions (overwintered - red and white), shallots, mint, raspberries, loganberries, strawberries and blackcurrants. And I have to say I'm quite chuffed with that!

To keep on top of all the fruit this year I've been making jam. Around 35 jars so far this year! So far we have Rhubarb and Orange, Gooseberry, Strawberry, and Raspberries jam, and Marmalade - and the burnt strawberry jam of course... Although it has to be said it is still OK in jam roly poly.
