The Pullets first egg and juicing for the first time!

Holly the pullet laid her first egg on the 23rd October and boy did she let everyone
Below is a pic of Holly...

Also today My son Connor and I went up to our allotment and collected all the fallen apples so we could juice them, below are the pictures.

Also today we decided to copy an idea from "River Cottage" using Apples and Beeetroot it was "Apple and beetroot crumble", I must admit when we tried it im not sure we liked, was a weired taste, think its because the brain doesnt think of beetroot as a pudding!

A new Recipe

Look what we had for dinner yesterday, I made this using "red chillies, onions,peppers, garlic and tomatoes" all from my garden or my allotment, the other ingredients were bought I'm afraid.The sauce is "Parsley sauce" Only took 20mins in all to make and was soooo Delicious!
