Today was official Crab Apple Day at the Labrador Security Co.
We’ve never had one before – although the trees have sat at the front of the drive for the past 14 years. Still, there’s a first time for everything and today we thought it about time that something constructive was done with the bright yellow tree decorations before they rotted to brown squidgy mush. I was sent outdoors to remove said objects from the tree by whatever means at my disposal. Disappointingly, J ruled out my preferred proposal – that of throwing the smaller of the mutts into the branches to dislodge the fruit. After that crushing veto it was, sadly, down to me.
I now have sore thumbs 😦
Worse was to come. Cleaning 3kg of soddin’ crab apples is not my idea of a fun day! However we now have a plastic container holding a reasonable amount of crab apple and rosemary juice (yes rosemary – we’re a bit poncy here). Jelly tomorrow!
Eh…anybody know if crab apple (and rosemary) jelly has any use other than as part of the nuclear fission process?
Crab Apple Day notwithstanding here’s a couple of photos of the Labrador Security Co. in “action” (though that might be the wrong word…considering).
