when life gives you lemons....make cordial

We were gifted a big load of lemons recently.  The only problem was that they were on their way out so I needed to use them up quickly.  I had a great little helper squeeze over 50 lemons and I made a sugar syrup - 2 parts sugar to 1 part water - to make the best lemon cordial I've ever tasted!!  I also sliced them up and froze them to be ready for an addition to a summer drink.

I've also been crocheting: tea cosies, a cushion and beanies.

The spring garden is cranking at full steam so we are enjoying picking each day - there really is nothing like wandering around the garden, and planning your meal from what you have.  This year our indoor hot house (aka back room) has worked a treat to raise the seeds.  The first of the tomatoes are in, bring on summer!
