I had a gift of a bag full of cooking apples at the weekend, and made a couple of different things. First an apple crumble, and then also a Dorset Apple Cake. I recorded the apple cake production (see below). I’m also planning to make something called Friar’s Omelette, which is nothing like an omelette, but another cake, before I can do that I need to top up some ingredients.
It’s been over a month since I last made a video at the allotment. Mostly this is because I wasn’t able to get down to the plot with my camera when it wasn’t raining, but things have really moved on.
I love making early morning visits to the allotment. No one else is around, so I get to see another side of the plots with watching the wildlife that inhabits them. This morning it was the Greater Spotted Woodpeckers, in the trees on the margins of the plots.
I also get to bring back crops for the meals for today. Apples for breakfast.
Beetroots for lunch.
Cabbage for supper.
