Rain. Grey. More rain. Not much incentive to go outside.
Thankfully, the good people at Rocket Gardens are a jolly sort and have given us a very good reason to get out, keep fit and assuage our biscuit cravings by doing a spot of gardening.
You see, right now is the perfect time of year to start planting soft fruit in preparation for crumbles, summer puds and jam making.
All you need to do to bag yourself one is tell us your most memorable fruit pie/crumble/pudding experience.
Post your answers below by Monday 26th January and come next autumn, you could be running your very own black market fruit pie operation (with a nice sideline in preserves).
(This competition has now closed.
Congratualtions to Big Tom, Sammy, Karen, Rachael, Susan F, Ian, Soo, Julie Lee, Steph, Emma, Lulu, Stephen Armstrong, Esther, Sarah Bruch, Anita, Ook, Davkt, Simone, Lindsay and Abby Bookham. Gardens on their way to you very very soon).
