I made some raspberry jam yesterday. We visited the Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm a few weeks ago and I bought some frozen raspberries. Unfortunately they only sell 2kg bags, so I had to thaw it all out at once. Anyway, it made 9 jars of jam and 20 raspberry muffins. Next time I make raspberry jam I will strain the seeds out of the raspberries first. I love raspberry jam, but the seeds really annoy me.
Anyway, it's all better now and I really must phone for that follow up appointment................
I have been knitting and gardening.
It is so nice to go out to the garden and pick some salad vegetables for a meal. So fresh and yummy! I harvested my garlic- I only planted nine cloves, but they grew beautifully. I must plant more next year.
I have tiny baby limes on my Tahitian Lime tree. It is growing in a pot on our deck. It is the only place sheltered from frosts in the winter. Last year it didn't even have a flower, but this year it has lots of tiny limes, so hopefully they grow.
I picked some purple onions too. I don't really like onions much, but the purple (red) variety are quite mild and lovely mixed with sliced tomatoes, a dash of sugar, salt, pepper and vinegar.
I have knitted two cotton cardigans. No real pattern, just top down raglan. I will post some notes about them on my knitting blog soon.
