Happy New Year everyone! With all the celebrations going on it’s the time of year when your stored veg can get a bit neglected. So it’s worth taking a peek now to make sure you don’t end up with a rotten mess that’s fit for nothing.
Take the last of my pumpkins and squash for example.
They are starting to turn and need to be roasted or souped as soon as possible. Well worth a check, if I’d have left them another week or two they would have been useless.
With the first day of the New Year collective thoughts turn to shaking off that Christmas excess and the National Trust can help. At one of our local NT sites, Mottisfont Abbey, near Romsey, Hampshire, they’ve built a “Trim Trail” so you can power walk in the beautiful surroundings and stop off at a number of exercise points along the way.

Best wishes for 2011.
