The poor veggie garden has really struggled this year. What with the cold start, then the first month of summer rained and rained and rained, then we had a wee nice spell, then it got so, so, so humid, then a bit more heavy rain, it never really stood a chance. It was the month of rain at the start that really did it. I have some amazing chilli plants and some lovely aubergines, but now that it's autumn they're just not going to get a chance to ripen. It's such a shame, poor things.
Usually by this time of year we will be well stocked up with bags of passata in the freezer. Not this year, though.
passata and passata recipe. I am really hoping I'll get enough from this lot to make a decent batch that will at least last part of next year.
I shall keep you posted.
