No, not a variation on the Strawberry Crush quilt I made last year, but real strawberry jam, made with strawberries from my garden. When we moved in we inherited quite a lot of strawberry plants, but they're not the tastiest strawberries I've ever tasted. So, we've had several fruit salads and smoothies and yesterday I made five pots of jam. It looks as if there's already enough fruit ripe to make another five pots too, so I think I'm going to be kept busy.
There are few things more satisfying than seeing fruit or vegetables from your own garden going into dishes or preserves. We've had loads of radishes this year, but not much else yet as we were quite late planting. But the Swiss Chard is ready, along with some of the carrots and lettuces. And the peas are on their way, along with some of the summer cabbages and the first crop of beetroot. Can you see the big smile on my face?
