              The store barn is looking healthy this year with onions, shallots, garlic, potimarron squash and 300kgs of butternuts. Then 45 750g jars of ratatouille, 50 jars of various jams, lemon curd, confit of duck, ditto onions and figs. Then broad beans, sweetcorn, asparagus, lemon grass, chillies and herbs in the freezers. Ah and 5 big jars of pickled eggs. Jerusalem artichokes, carrots, parsnips, celeriac and brassicas still on the veg plot. You wouldn't believe that we live on toasted sandwiches, would you? :heehee:

                :love30: Thank you, thank you, thank you.....Don't know what they're called in English! Poti = from potiron = squash marron = chestnut, so a chestnut-flavoured, bright orange, pear-shaped squash that makes lovely soup! Not as easy to grow as butternuts, though:)

                  I hasten to add that word Celery:) as I have mentioned it a few times. My large chest freezer has a boulder on it’s lid keeping it down as full doesn’t quite describe it after processing the Celery to as small as possible.
                  The rest of what i have is in sensible proportions
                  Chillis .....took @shiney good suggestion and have dried them and now in jars,
                  Tomato’s made into sauce in jars about 15 jars.
                  Beetroot pickled......heading towards the Celery amount but not quite (about 40 jars)
                  Onions, dreadful,were meant to be big ones and are NOT, plus Garlic, good, hanging in a dry outhouse. Garlic planted in pots in the greenhouse for next season.
                  Huge crop of both eating and cooking Apples. Not too sure what the I am gong to do with these as no room in the freezer due to said Celery. Mind you some b mouse is eating it’s way steadily through a few. For 1 ghastly moment I thought it was something much bigger than a mouse but no the “leavings behind” are definitely mouse. I have made some chutney out of a quantity of the cookers but the pile hasn’t even been dented. There is a grey arrangement in the field who will happily eat any surplus so expect said horse will fall heir to what remains.
                  Carrot purée in freezer, only puréed because takes up less space. Still got carrots in the ground ( will be used up shortly)along with parsnips, leeks and swede which will stay in situ.
                  Basil and Parsley still going strong on the kitchen windowsill and think that’s about it
                  My list is very boring in comparison to @noisette47 ’s which reads like a Fortnum and Masons food catalogue:)....very jealous! When are you opening your shop noisette?

                    That's a coincidence, @silu.....I'm utterly jealous of your ability to grow apples good enough to store!:biggrin: I have to purée or dry what's left of mine after the codling moth larvae have finished with them. Every year the Bramleys start off looking promising, I thin them out but then they stop growing (probably due to drought?). As for celery......respect is due!:love30:

                      In my case, not as much as I had expected. Something or somebody has taken all my chokeberries, wolfberries, and cherries.

                      At least the quince, gooseberries, and redcurrants gave a good harvest, so they are all waiting to be converted into various things.
