Have stickers, will travel. Today I’m going to bury my phone at the bottom of my bag during my train journey. It’s four hours, a couple of changes, and there are plenty of places I can plant these along the way.
Blackberries when still slightly sour have enough pectin to set without apples or lemons. It’s really satisfying to get a good set on jelly without adding in another flavour. Though I do like a mixed jam, there’s something wonderful about blackberry jelly. It’s worth getting snagged by thorns, buzzed by wasps and the waiting for the liquid to drip through the cloth.
dreaming of the reed bunting’s song and a cool breeze.
hope everyone is coping with this hottest of summers.
stay cool, stay hydrated, and type on.
