Food, Glorious Food

The freezer arrived yesterday, so after letting it settle in we turned it on and loaded it with the fruit we have processed since taking over the potager/verger. All you can see in the following photo is fruit based (if you're being a pedant and calling tomatoes a fruit, which they are), or fruit and veg based (if you're normal). Somewhere in there are 10 dinners worth of Pasta sauce for two people, the rest is cherries, nectarines and plum based produce.

And talking of produce, this is what we picked yesterday:


Plums, pears, apples, nashi and tomatoes you can see easily. Below them are haricots verts, lettuce, chillies, aubergine, courgette, cornichon, hazelnuts and nectarines. When we got home I picked another 6 or 7 largish tomatoes from the front garden.

If we aren't careful we are in danger of eating healthily.

Somewhere down the track I think a good heavy duty juicer would come in very handy, pears, apples, carrots, celery, beetroot, there will always be something you can juice, (very quick too)and freeze in iceblocks for later use.
