Our ‘togetherness’ went as far as chopping up windfall apples and preparing them for the freezer – busy busy busy!
Ok, so summer may be on its way out, but autumn is a breath away with all the delights of seasonal treats. The vegetable patch is yielding the last of the year’s produce – the autumn fruiting raspberries are providing a steady flow of fruit and the runner beans are delicious. All the other veg seems to have been munched by ‘nasties’ lurking in the soil or hovering overhead (it’s a conspiracy between creepy crawlies and flying gluttons). But hey, I love runner beans, I love raspberries and I love cooked apple, so all is right with the world! (We even have blackberries appearing in the garden and along the hedge… delightful!)
3 months of plenty! How delightful! So I won’t mind that summer is waving farewell or that winter is waiting in the wings – even though I have already been asked what I planning for Christmas!! ‘Go with the flow’ is the watchword for the season. Relax and enjoy!
