Onion Harvest

A nice sunny day at last, so we decided to harvest our onions. They are a good size this year, just one advantage of all the rain!

Cucumber Relish

It might be a bit late in the season to be sharing this for those of you who grow their own cucumbers, but your own chutney and relish is always better than store bought.

The skins can be tough on home grown cucumbers but the flesh is so much more juicy than shop bought. This recipe requires them to be peeled anyway.
