|Tonight I’ve made ‘windfall apple chutney’ using the first lot of apples we collected from the ground. The kids did all of the collecting and I’m very pleased with them. It was a cheap chutney to make which is right up there on my priority list! It says it doesn’t need to mature like the other chutney’s but I’ll leave some to. Apparently it tastes best with a good cheddar and some homemade bread. There’s that word again! So that’s my plan, it’d be rude not to! Here is the link if anyone is interested in making their own. It’ll be the first of many recipes for me using the food for free which we have in the garden and surrounding areas.

Thank you to everyone who took time out to comment on my last post. I feel like I have made huge strides this weekend despite not doing anything major. So without further ado, let’s get back to normal but with the addition of incorporating some if your lovely ideas into my daily and weekly routines. Routine and planning seems to be the key. More to follow on this.
I don’t think I posted about out latest Freeby. A wheely bin with a tap on the bottom of it. We have hooked it up to the rain flow off the greenhouse and tonight I started using this harvested rain water to water the greenhouse. Simple and effective and best of all free. Especially as we’re on a water metre here.
Tomorrow we will purchase our next round of chicken feed but it won’t cost us a penny. They have literally paid for themselves in eggs. How fabulous! I hope you’ve all had a lovely Monday and happy new week!!
