Blackcurrant Jam

We had six pounds of fruit from the blackcurrant bushes on plot 18 and I have made them into jam. Blackcurrant Jam

The weather has been terrible with loads of torrential rain bringing blight spores to everyone’s potato crops. Only the ones grown under shelter in bins have survived. We may follow that example next year. With the blight doing a wrecking job above ground the slugs have finished the job below ground. It is disappointing but there are successes with the brassicas and the peas doing quite well despite the weather. The runner beans are climbing up their poles steadily and if we get some warm weather we may get a good crop.
