I can't believe... good I've been.

Rather than buy a lot of ready prepared veggies, the last couple of weeks I've been going to the Farm Shop at Barleylands.

As we head into Autumn (yes I know we haven't had a proper Summer - yet!) I always look forward to the appearance of things like Butternut Squash and the seasonal veggies that start to arrive in more of the shops - but they can be quite expensive. My local Morrison's had Butternuts at a £1 each and they were quite small - the Farm shop were doing them at 4 for a £1 and they were a lot larger.

In all the years that I've lived in this area, I have driven past the Farm shop but never ventured in until two weeks ago.

I have now visited twice and each time come out loaded with a fabulous selection of goodies.

Squashes and cauliflower, cabbages and carrots.

I have also been very industrious - my freezer is packed with freshly prepared squash & cauliflower and I now have a batch of veggie stew boxed up and ready to add to the stock. I have to say I'm quite proud of myself for actually getting it all done.

Unfortunately, my freezer isn't large otherwise I would be back at the Farm shop for more veggies to add but never mind. It is now on my list of places to visit regularly and I intend to keep my freezer well stocked with fresh goodies this Winter.

Gosh...straighten the halo Toni LOL

At least now I know I have a stock of some of my favourite veggies and I'm looking forward to tucking in....................................................................................
