Plum and Pepper Jam Time

 

As we are all aware Christmas is right around the corner. We hope you are readying yourself for the festivities. If you still haven’t got to the shops yet because you are very busy, or like us avoiding them like the plague, or maybe you just want to add the final touches to a gift but are not quite sure what with. You might even be sitting in your kitchen stressing about what to give your nearest and dearest over a nice piece of toast?

Then a thought comes into your head, “Jam!” you cry! “Yes, I will buy them all a pot of jam.”

No, that’s no good. Make it! Twice as fun and twice as thoughtful, AND cheaper. Better still you can finally use all those old jars. Maybe we are just hoarders of old jars, but we have loads, so we’re very glad to put them all to good use.

Our Morning with Ruby and Rosie (The Allotment)

 

Into The Eco - Allotment Fun

 

One sunny bank holiday weekend, my lovely friend Ruby invited us to join her at her allotment, which we have Nicknamed Rosie. We chose the name Rosie as there are some lovely white roses growing on her patch and who doesn’t love a nickname. Ruby picked us up in her car in the morning, then just a short car ride away we arrived at our destination, ready to get our hands dirty. Walking through the old rusty gate and into the area filled with people’s homegrown goodies, we felt transported from the hustle and bustle of London life to a peaceful sanctuary for urban growers.
