Welcome Ken to my side bar and also to Jenny on Blog lovin.
As Christmas fades into memory I am posting my last Christmas pics. These are of EGD's offerings ... and very nice they were too.
The first picture is of some of the hampers, she made twelve in all! (boxes made by her boyfriend) she filled for the grown-up households. Each was filled for individual likes ( plenty of market research went into this to ensure nobody received anything they didn't like) In each box is a mixture of jams, curds and pickles, peppermint creams, shortbread and truffles made by EGD and then a little individual gift from GS, her brother, as well. These boxes were delightful and received well by everyone.
The next picture shows the presents she made for younger folk. Either a mug of mixed sweets or a "cookie mix in a jar". brilliant idea!
We have a had a productive weekend. The wine is now in demijohns and the honey is finally spun. We were going to do this last weekend, but life intervened. YGD enjoyed using our ancient spinner. If it had been electric it would have been no fun at all ! We are very pleased that we have any honey at all and if the swarms survive the winter and we can sell a couple of hives we will be over the moon.
Here is Little Miss Dynamite at her labours.
Need to get back to the housework now as the Civic Society Committee are meeting here tonight and I have to clear a space for them among the jars and bottles!
Did any of you follow "Hard up Hester" ? she stopped blogging suddenly some months ago. I noticed yesterday that she was back in my side bar so clicked straight on to her blog. What I read was quite bizarre. A tutorial on worm farming and some "comments" on the side in an unidentifiable language. What's occurring do you think? I'd never got HHH down as a worm farm sort of girl somehow!
