Here it is Christmas Eve already and it is hot! I have been up since 5am picking my second apricot tree to save the fruit from the birds and giving it a heavy prune at the same time. I have spent the week dealing with produce from my Trevatt apricot. So now I am onto the Moore Park Early apricot. Jars are full of chutney and jam. The dehydrator is full of apricots and now I have many many kilos more to deal with. That can wait until Boxing Day. The days are hot and dry and the garden requires a lot of watering. I am holding my breath as we are in drought conditions here and there may be water restrictions enforced early next year. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.
