I have managed to do a little sewing, all of the secret variety!
So I'll have to share some different pictures instead.
A new to me recipe.
Spicy Tomato Chutney
With apples and sultanas. The apples turn to mush and the sultanas plump up.
It's a very sweet and spicy chutney.
Which looks very dark in the jar.
Hmm, no matter what I try, blogger wants this photo this way round.
The nights are longer and cooler and we have had some cooler days, but mostly we still have warm days so the chilli are still ripening out in the greenhouse.
Here you see a mixture of long wild fire chilli and the round Habanero.
Tony has requested another batch of Evil Chilli Chutney with this lot.
The Carolina Reapers are still very green.
At $120.00 per kilogram in the super market I wouldn't be making this one if we didn't grow our own chilli. Each batch takes 600 grams.
I've made a start on our winter garden. There have been supply issues with seedlings at our usual outlets, so we purchased online. Our seedlings were couriered overnight from Christchurch. A two hour drive up the road, and look at what was delivered.
The box was clearly marked as fragile and had a big this way up arrow.
We ordered 6 each of broccoli and cauliflower, they were all mixed up with the two punnets of baby beets. Three of the broccoli and/or cauliflower are broken the rest seem to have survived once I got them back in to their punnets. The beets I put straight in to the garden, about half of them seem to have survived, the rest have given up. Lots of photos were sent to NZ Courier post and also the suppliers. Neither party has responded yet. I'm not a happy gardener.
And just to prove that I have done some sewing.
I have just over an hour before I have to think about work, so I'm off to do some more secret stuff.
I hope you all had a great week and a better weekend.
Did you celebrate St Patricks day?
