All this lovely colour colour came from budget packets of seeds. I thought the sweet peas had given up but the cooler weather has brought them back to life. The asters are the easiest thing to grow from seed. They always put on a good late summer display. The cosmos hasve been flowering the whole summer.
I have had such a glut of these plum tomatoes. I can’t even remember what variety they are.
We are still eating runner beans most days. I haven’t frozen
so many this year. I feel I want to absorb as much sunshine as I can while it lasts. I took a long walk today but didn’t take a tub for blackberries. They are quite small this year but plenty of them. I freeze them on a tray, then transfer to a pot and use them on my porridge in the winter. We do like a blackberry and apple crumble. My apple tree hasn’t done well. I’m hoping that some apples come my way soon. People are very generous this time of year. We visited Evesham last week. Someone had left bags of Victoria plums on a table outside their garden
gate. There was an honesty box there for a charity donation. They were the best plums I had tasted for years. I have an elderly neighbour who has a plum tree. They always go to waste. It seems a bit cheeky to ask if I could pick them for him and have some. The wasps are enjoying them at the moment. Looking forward to some more mellow days in the week ahead. Back to work at preschool next week. It will be good to see everyone again and meet new little people.
