It was a beautiful day in other ways too.
I found that, with Thermione's help, I can make nice shortcrust pastry. I made a scrummy dinner for me, Beth and Alex, I made a batch of seedless blackberry and apple jam and I've found recipes to use up the rest of the apples. I have one more to add my jampot list, posted yesterday, and that is slow cooker spiced apple butter. Doesn't that sound good?

When Beth and Alex came round they were bearing gifts - black beans, courgettes and two butternut squashes. Fantastic. With my tomatoes, carrots and runner beans (which are still producing happily) I am well set for the week as far as veg is concerned. It's a nice, fuzzy feeling! Thanks, Beth!

Ah, well, it is six forty and I need to start getting ready for school.
