Those jalapenos lined up are lovely! Do you can them after you pickle them?
Not these ones Dave. They will keep for a few weeks in the fridge, and will probably be eaten by then.
That is a good looking head of cauliflower! I've never had much luck growing it here. Those lizards are truly amazing. I've never seen ones that were unafraid of humans. Ours scamper off quickly!
Lovely looking crops, and the fuschias are gorgeous.
Thank you Trill... they have done well at this end of the year
Every lizard I've encountered has quickly retreated - how fascinating that they should be so bold!
Quite exciting to see them that close... A rustle if a bag and they are there in a shot and if you have banana they are easy to hand feed even! A real privilege
I'll let you know how feeding them goes, Sue. Even in cloudy weather they look keen! I was told the quinces are Ekmek: bearing in mind they are from an untended plot this is almost folk lore now...
The idea of feeding lizards is lovely but I can see how some people would feel intimidated by lizards swarming towards them.
Your quince fruits are really different to ours. What variety do you grow?
You wouldn't want to eat them raw Dave, they are so sour! Hard to believe they make such a beautiful drink isn't it?
Congratulations on those awards! I know that represents a lot of hard work on your part. That is an impressive collection of squashes there too. I've had sloe gin before but never seen the berries.
Congrats on winning the award....you'll have to send me the pickled pepper recipe so that I have something to do with mine!!
Hi Fran... good to hear from you. The pickled pepper recipe is masquerading as pickled cucumbers (Preserves 2016 October) Hope that helps! Good you have a big crop of them too
Well done looks amazing
Thanks James … have to do something when badminton is out of the window!!
Wow, what a fantastic result! That award is so well-deserved! Those Nerines are particularly attractive.
Thank you Mark. Hoping for more flowers next year as the other bulbs mature
