How to Freeze Fresh Summer Fruit #strawberrypicking #summer #summerfruit #fruit #homemaking #preserving

It's that most wonderful time of the year, the start of summer fruit picking season.  Strawberries, raspberries, currants, cherries, gooseberries, damsons, plums, whatever you pick there really is only so much you can eat in one day.  So what can you do with all that delicious fresh produce to keep it going well into the depths of winter?

Balcony Gardening: June #gardening #balconygardening

Just a quick update this month as we haven't got much colour on the balcony at the moment, but lots of fruit and vegetables on their way in our 4m x 1m space.  The tomatoes have loved all the heat and sunshine we've had lately and are a mass of flowers.  Looking forward to a bumper crop as summer progresses.

Eating Out with Kids: The Peacehaven Restaurant #review @eatdrinkmb @stonehousepizza #Sussex

The Peacehaven restaurant used to be under Mitchell & Butler's Crown Carveries marque, but has recently reopened as a Stonehouse Pizza & Carvery.  We went along to find out what they had to offer, and how child-friendly the food and the atmosphere is.

Our Unschooled Week #15

Well, after all the joy and wonderfulness of last week's post, this one will mostly involve moaning!  We set out last Saturday with grand plans for visiting my mum, a school fete, LEGOLAND, Bekonscot Model Village and more.  Instead, we ended up with sunburn, sunstroke and misery!

Recipe: Chocolate Spread Crumblies

Mmm, hazelnut chocolate spread.  Delicious, right?  But the high sugar content is not so good, being the equivalent of 57 sugar cubes per 400g jar.  Luckily, mum Kellie Bath has come to the rescue with her JimJams range of low sugar spreads, which includes a hazelnut chocolate version.  We put it through its paces and created these yummy Chocolate Spread Crumblies too.
