Marrows are plentiful in my home this month, so much so that I have given some away, mostly to family who have been more accepting of them than neighbours who have said 'Thank you, but no thank you'.
We also have some windfall cooking apples (not pictured). Its the first year, our apple tree is giving us any at all, but the plum tree this year is not plentiful.
I don't want to grumble, we still have plums - but I don't think I will be giving many of them away this year. Also a number of them, when I have cut them open to use in cake have been black. So come this weekend, I will be making more Cinnamon Plum Jam.
I had planned to show off some of my homegrown tomatoes, but I am afraid we ate them pretty quick over the weekend in three different dishes. I hope to share some next week, or the week after, but in the meantime here is a view from my conservatory window. Isn't it splendid?!.
We picked up this battered galvanised animal feed trough from a second hand furniture shop when we went to Hereford last month. My husband was eager to use it, and potted up some chili plants that we picked up from a garden centre at a reasonable price. If your interested follow this link to have a gander at whats in my conservatory space, an extension of my kitchen.
I am sharing this post with Harvest Monday (yes, I know its Tuesday today) which is hosted by Dave over Our Happy Acres.
