Busy

Today I am keeping busy. A friend has given me 2kgs of tangelos that I am currently making into marmalade. I have included in the mix a very few of my Australian Red Centre Limes (a cross between an acrid mandarin and an Australian Finger lime). I am not sure if there will be any impact on the flavour, my previous experience with finger limes is that they imparted a noticeable flavour to my marmalade.

My Australian Red Centre Lime is cropping well this year.

This afternoon I am cooking the fruit in two batches. The first to derive the juice and the remainder to include in the jam.

The fruit of the red centre lime.

Here it all is cooking away.

On the boil, my tangelos and limes.

Meanwhile I am preparing some toilet rolls so I can get some pea seeds started. Hopefully it’s not to late to get a crop in. I tape 3 toilet roll cores together before filling them with seed raising mix and getting the seeds underway.

On a roll, sorry about that.

Once the seeds sprout the rolls will be separated and planted individually. This way I can set up the best defenses against the ever present garden snails.
