Sunday 16th September 2012 has been the sort of day I like. Bright and warm with a nice gentle breeze. I was planning to make my Chilli Chutney next weekend but after looking at the tomato plants full of fresh ripe fruit I thought I’d better do the first batch this afternoon. We’ve been really lucky this year with the tomatoes and even the chillis have given us a good crop after initially looking doubtful with the cold wet start to the summer. Anyway I highly recommend making your own Chilli and Tomato Chutney either for yourself or as a nice homemade present to give friends and family for Christmas.

Jobs for next weekend include making the main batch of chutney and harvesting our lavender.
Meanwhile last night saw the start of this years Strictly Come Dancing. It’s a bit of fun and is another one of those things that for me marks the start of the countdown to Christmas.
