Green cherry tomato jam

We had plenty of green cherry tomatoes from the Daily Bread Space… so we decided to make jam!

Easiest recipe ever:

1kg of green tomatoes, juce of 2 lemons, 1 vanilla pod and 700g of sugar.

Cut the tomatoes, combine with the rest in a (very) big pan, boil to dissolve the sugar and cook at medium heat for 1hr…that’s it 🙂


It’s not too early in the year to do gardening!

If you like digging (rather than using no-dig growing methods), you can do so now if your soil isn’t frozen or water-logged. Dig compost into the soil if you have any. Soils benefits from “settling” at least six weeks before sowing or planting!

In protected and sunny patches you can sow: broad beans, kohlrabi, parsnips, peas, radish, spinach.

Under cover (cold frames may do) you can sow: beetroot, broad beans, many brassicas, leeks, lettuce, onions.
