had to go in a Kilner jam jar instead.
|The last of the strawberries, raspberries and Tayberries|
went to make fabulously red fridge jam
|Our babygrapes - currently looking like a 3D scientific model!|
|Home-grown courgette and tomato gratin - mmm...|
|Hessian bags - perfect potato storage|
|Spot the green wedges - shame on you McCain !|
|Yes, your eyes do not deceive you, reader:|

|But to my delight, the gift wasn't actually a packet of |
cheese'n onion cheddars... (much as I like them!)
