Sheesh. I've tried on three separate occasions on three days to upload photos to Blogger and still haven't managed to. I don't know what the problem is, although I suspect it has something to do with my sleepy satellite broadband connection. (How sleepy is my connection? Put it this way, I always have reading matter next to the computer, so I can spend the time it takes to upload and download things profitably. Sleepy internet connections is one of the drawbacks of living in rural Australia. Roll on, National Broadband Network. I know my life will change when we finally get it, although I won't get through as many books).
Much as I prefer to post photos as well as text, until I sort this issue out, it will be photo-less posts.
This week has seen the start of the preserving season. We've picked buckets of tomatoes and figs, which I have turned into tomato relish, fig jam and jars of figs in grappa. Still managing to eat plenty of figs au naturel though.
We've also been picking peaches and grapes.
Seems strange to be posting about preserving and not have any photos to illustrate. I'll leave it there then.
BTW, if you are interested in either of the two books from the previous post, drop me a comment before Tuesday.
