BLOG TO BE CONTINUED SPRING 2018
Summer is saying a slow goodbye.
The nights are drawing in, there is a chill in the air at night and the leaves are just turning.
On a happier note the next 2 months are consistently spectacular.
We are still swimming, occasional kayaking and the usual long walks. Our weekend away with the kayaking club was a waste. High winds meant the prospect of a coastal tour was impossible; the wind has been quite frequent the last few weeks.
My vegetables? Have had mixed success. Lettuces were consistently impressive but the runner beans were a bit stringy. A mixture of different types of tomato made each salad a delight. I have now discovered at least 2 pumpkins growing in my veg plot.
Foraging? Can't quite work out this year whether I have missed the blackberries or not. I can't find them in most places & then a cluster that fills a bag. Chanterelles are in an abundance so made a splendid wild mushroom dish with courgettes and whole wheat pasta.
