It's that time of year again! I'm cooking marmalade's like a mad thing so that there will be enough for Christmas markets and presents to sell in my shop. Filling bottles with lovely rapeseed oil. The oil bottles will have their usual winter scarfs on to keep warm, and the marmalade's/ jams will have colourful paper tops!

Welcome to a new start for my blog!

We are approaching harvest time, and it's not just the crops in the fields that need harvesting. It's all go here with raspberry picking daily ( a must have in the freezer for my jams, Tutti Frutti, Raspberry and Apple and Raspberry and Rhubarb).

Redcurrants have been picked for gele's. The Seabuckthorn ( Havtorn in Swedish) bushes are getting ripe, and will be ready towards the end of this month. Not looking forward to
 that job with those nasty thorns !! Looks like there will be a good crop of apples too.

I must start to replenish my stocks of marmalade's and jams for the shop!
The hens have been laying well, they love the rapeseed cake that we mix in with their feed, lots of nourishment there!
