The elderflower champagne has been bottled and is fizzing away nicely. In fact I had to release the caps to let out some of the gas. If anyone is making this stuff and using corks in glass bottles be prepared for corks flying round the room and sticky fizz all over the place. It really does produce a lot of gas!
Had some baby carrots with our tea tonight. During the winter we are obliged to buy carrots as I don’t have enough space to grow large amounts and the difference in taste is amazing. Shop-bought ones still taste of carrots but it’s the sweetness of the freshly pulled ones that you have to taste to believe. I’m growing a few more containers of carrots this year but unfortunately not enough to keep us through the winter months.
Just had a thought. As the potato containers are emptied I could re-use the compost for carrots....but then I’d have to find somewhere to put them because the tatie ground is going to be home to leeks and possibly winter cabbage. Hmmm, some serious thinking to be done. My wife will say forget the leeks but, being a northern lad, I can’t do without leeks. It would be like asking an Italian to forgo his pasta!!
