Busy Week!

Well It has been quite a busy week for me, I started off getting a load of apples from the college fruit garden and making an apple cake

I found Paula Dean when I was living in Canada a few years ago and loved her style of cooking. The cake turned out well but I think if I try it again I will add a tuch more cinnamon.

Then It got really cold here with a little bit of frost, so I decided to use up the tomatoes that were left before the frost gets them and made some relish

It has to sit for a month before you can eat it, I cant wait to try it!

New Blog !

This is my first post on my new blog, its all very exciting!

Ok, well some background info here would probably be a good idea.
I have recently started an HNC in Horticulture at Langside College in Glasgow. Its only been a few weeks so far but I am really enjoying it. I got my first test results back today and I got 14 out of 15 so very pleased with myself. I have had an allotment for around 5 years now and still trying to fight off the weeds. I am slowly winning the war :)

Well I think that's enough to start with.
