Fruits of our labour

I picked the last of the tomatoes and chillies yesterday as the plants are starting to die now so I thought I'd better before they all go mouldy! I've put the tomatoes into a brown paper bag and put them in a cupboard as they are supposed to ripen well by doing this - can't remember where I read that little tip - I'll let you know if it works! I'll probably forget and find a mouldy mess in a couple of weeks!
I'm going to thread the chillies up and let them dry out, they're great for putting into soups to give them a wee bit of a kick!
Also busy today getting all of the stock tagged and priced for the Travelling Souks that I'm doing tomorrow and Tuesday. Tommorow is at Thriepley House, Lundie, near Dundee and Tuesdays is at Kilbryde Castle, by Dunblane. Fingers crossed both will be a success, really looking forward to getting back into the swing of things for Christmas, time will just fly by between now and mid December, what a thought!

I hope that today's souk went well.
I tried drying chillies last year but they all got eaten by mice who must have tightroped along the wires.
We obviously have mice with Speedy Gonzalez tastes.

Hi Jane,

Was lovely to see you again yesterday, hope you enjoyed your morning out! Both days were a great success, would definitely do them again next year. Off to empty the car and get back to it!

Ah emptying the car! My favourite job (not) - I tend to use it as an extra cupboard.
Glad they went well - your stall was beautiful.
