Damson jelly sweets, from fruit labelled 'help yourself' at the allotments last year. Jane le Galloudec says they waited in a sealed box until she got around to coating them in chocolate. "It was a very messy exercise and I don't think I'd repeat it too soon but they were certainly tasty."

A perfect apple, picked by Jane le Galloudec on the path linking Spareacre Lane to the A40.

"I collected a basket full and juiced them and they were delicious."
The shapely apple candles looked lovely on the dark green cloth and attracted a lot of attention. Ros Kent says "If we'd had a crateful I think we could have sold them all!"
