Harvest time in full swing
We are busy harvesting and processing to have food to eat in the winter months. This year there are amazing blackberries and we are cooking them with (traded) windfall apples to make jam and crumble fillings to freeze. yesterday we harvested the Almond and walnuts (yes we beat the squirrels this year!) see photo for harvesting with a rake tied to a long pole! We gathered about one and a half three gallon buckets of walnuts (a good harvest) in their green overcoats. Also busy processing seeds; Spinach and spinach beet, rocket, lettuce, melon, leek and onion,celeriac and celery, beetroot (red and white). Busy, busy, busy!
