    Its not stopped him eating sheep shit though!

    Back to the thread title. Boring I know, how we love a digression.
    Our Autumn Rasberries are cropping really well. So glad I planted new stock 2 years ago. Our freezer is full of fruit, building a fruit cage over the currants and gooseberries was really worth what it cost. Even had some summer puddings - is there any better use for full cream.
    A good year for apples, getting loads from neighbouring allotment plot holders and I'm going to make some crab apple jelly soon.

    Doesn't sound so bad. Good luck!
