GRBP Giveaway

I cannot believe how quickly the 15th has come around. Time to announce the winners of the Grow Your Blog Party Giveaway!!!!!
PRIZE 1: Cathy from is the lucky winner of the prize pictured above!!! Please email me Cathy with your postal details as soon as possible.

PRIZE 2: Jan from is the lucky winner of the prize pictured above. Please email me with your postal details as soon as possible.
I used to draw the winners but haven't yet worked out how to screen shot the draw to bring across to my blog!!

Today I made a vegetable pickle from green tomatoes, capsicum, onion, celery. beans and zucchini. That is them all sliced up and soaking for several hours covered in salt. I then drained them, rinsed them and layered them in jars with chopped up mint, parsley and garlic and then filled the jars with olive oil. They are yummo when the oil is drained off and they are put on biscuits.
This is them bottled. Big problem though - I only got 3 jars out of them so it looks like a drive to the tomato farm to pick some more!! A lot more as I also want to make some relish!!
A lovely 2 days here as we have had an inch (25mm) of slow drizzling rain!! I am hoping the farmers in the drought areas have also received some although it probably will only be a enough to freshen up the countryside - many more constant falls are needed to really be of any help to them.
