I always wanted to have a house with a walk-in larder or a pantry, I don’t have either and I can see the reason in having one of these. I’m running out of space to store my produce.
This is the result of my efforts from last night and today – bottled red and white currants, raspberries and strawberry and raspberry jam. I’m sure my Grandma would be very happy with my efforts, she always bottled and preserved everything Grandad grew on his plot. I’m sure I’ve inherited their genes!
In the winter we can all have a taste of summer on our plate!
The strawberry harvest was 26 kg up to and including yesterday. The first 3 beds are almost empty, I shall take the nets off to give the birds a bit of treat but I have one more bed close to the shed and that one is just starting to produce fruit.
More strawberries, here we come!
You can’t have too much of a good thing.

Hello, I am enjoying reading your blog. Just wondering what your technique is for preserving your redcurrants? Thanks!
I pack the Kilner jars full of the currants, pour in light sugar syrup and keep in boiling water bath for about 20 minutes. It seems to work….
