We had a serious clear-out of our two freezers on Sunday...

Two binbags of old toms, pumpkins, squash and other stuff went straight into the bin! Elder daught had instructed us!

It was a cathartic experience, especially as some stuff had been there for two or three years, and so we've done the deed!

So what happens? A visit to MandS in T.Wells brings home a ton of stuff to fill the gaps, but doesn't it all look fabulous now!


It has to be done sometimes, but Id have added them to the compost bins.

Our personal tomato mountain has spurred me into action, and so far in the garage store there is:

- Red Wine & Garlic Sauce
-Tomato & Basil Sauce
 - Curry-base Sauce
and cooking on the stove is Orange Tomato Jam with smoked paprika
In the freezer are three zip lock bags filled with slow roast tomatoes with olive oil and sea salt

Still plenty to go, and lots more to ripen. Keep me busy for a while!!

Also frozen are sweetcorn, french beans, cauliflower and calabrese, plus some blackberries not too many or we won't be able to use them all  :nowink:

"It has to be done sometimes, but Id have added them to the compost bins."

Yep, we thought of that but some of the bags were old 'bol' leftovers with bits of mince etc, and since I gave our side hedge a serious haircut, our lovely neighbours would have been treated to a rather nasty looking mess, plus Roddie the rodent would have had a field day...

The heap is about 5 ft high, so needs a good seeing-to before long...
