Me To Jane .. I was picking blackberries again today we have loads in the field next to us ... .We have some bramleys coming but not so many this year .. Our son and grandchildren usually turn up in time for the apple and blackberry pies in the summer ..Lol ......

Bless..they certainly know where to come for a good sweet ! We try to store Amy..have 3 ancient apple trees...but to be honest most go to the birds ! Lol

Do you wrap them in tissue in a dark draw Jane ? we do that with the cox's orange pippins we still had some last March ,
There's some old apple trees on the field next to us , we took some with us to an Apple identifying day at the local museum but the experts couldn't identify them , they wanted to charge us £5 an apple to send them away , they weren't our property so we didn't do it . :o)
There's some apple trees up the lane here which fall to the ground , you wouldn't believe how many rabbits sit there munching away they hardly move when you drive by ......

Last year we stored most in old larder \Amy..keeping apart by about an inch..lasted until jan..kept putting out for the birds..the trees must be ancient...

How lovely to have a larder Jane .. we had one at my fathers old house , you could walk in it with shelf upon shelf to store things with a marble slab on one and lovely old stone floors to keep it cool ...( Big sigh )

7 Aug, 2010

 

This one in the cottage is walk in too Amy...like the one in my childhood home.You cant beat them.Ray built shelves in ours where I store all sorts..mainly tubs and tubs of bird food !

LOL , I can imagine Jane no room for ' proper food ' we use to have something called silver fish sometimes on the stone floors , i'm not sure what they really were ! I know things use to keep a lot longer than they do today , I remember a lump of cheese would stay good for ages today it goes mouldy in a week or so even in a fridge !
You've brought back memories Jane , I remember when we were little trying to stand on a lower shelf to reach something good on a higher shelf ..LOL...

7 Aug, 2010

 

LOL...We had silverfish too !! Interesting how the good stuff was ALWAYS on a higher shelf ! LOL....Mum used to hide those rarities...chocolate biscuits...away from us up there !!

Great looking carrots, not a worm hole in sight. I am going to pull some more of ours for Sunday dinner. Carrots should taste like carrots..............:o)

LOL... and Jane the bowl of dripping was always where you could see it .. :o)

I hope yours taste as good as these Homebird new carrots have a taste all their own there's nothing like it for the rest of the year !

7 Aug, 2010

 

You can't make proper dripping nowadays. I think the meat is too lean.

Amy
 

LOL .. You could be right Homebird I haven't been able to get any decent crackling for ages , I thought it might be because I don't buy such a big piece for just two of us , I use to get crackling alright with a big family joint !

7 Aug, 2010

 

I never thought of that Amy, you could be right.

7 Aug, 2010

 

These look tasty Amy well done on growing these-they are far in front of mine.

Thanks Richard , i'm pleased with them , you will be enjoying yours soon .. :o))

Hope so Amy if the carrot fly doesn't get to them first. I am growing them in a large gardening bag and put a transparent cover on the top just in case the carrot flies fancy a nibble.......lol ;-)

Thats a good idea Richard , I have noticed we already have a few that have been nibbled , trouble is they can't be stored like that ... but I do like to keep organic and not spray with anything .. :o)

11 Aug, 2010

 

I am the same Amy I don't like using sprays either. I do use washing up liquid, diluted, to spray the blackfly that have recently taken a fancy to my runner bean plants-little blighters...(the blackfly not the runner beans.....lol ) ;-)

11 Aug, 2010

 

Those look good, Amy...
Tasty :o)))

Washing up liquid is a good old fashioned remedy Richard and does seem to work , I hope you get a nice lot of runner beans .. :o))

They are tasty TT .. I love new carrots , it's the best time to have them ..:-)
