I have noticed that the cleaning stations for trolleys and hands , no longer have a queue and the vast majority of people just march in. suspect hand w...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 8.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 8.

Made the last of the plum jam yesterday, had more plums than I thought. Going to start on the bramble and apple today, have collected some brambles and may find time to get more, apples in short supply this year, not a good crop, so will have to make the jam more bramble heavy and less apples.
