Good morning, everyone. I'm awake really early today so will probably pay for it later but not to worry. It's nice to have lots of morning time to potter and ponder, plan and produce.
Yesterday evening, Beth and I went down the allotment and came back with this.
We shared it all out according to need and now I have loads of produce to enjoy. Just as my runner beans seem to be starting to give up, the ones at the allotment start flourishing so I will freeze most of them for another time while I finish off mine. They are still flowering (mine and allotment) but as the days get shorter and generally cooler, the flowers drop rather than setting.
The little red apples are redloves. Long standing readers may remember that I bought the little tree in memory of my Aunty May; it was in a container in my garden and never did well fruit-wise, producing five or so little fruit that dropped before ripening. Beth and I transferred it to the allotment and it's much happier, producing abundant apples for the first time. The one we shared as a taster yesterday was absolutely delicious.
The bigger apples are Coxes and the pears are WIlliams pears and they ripen off the tree so I have to keep my eye on them. No wrapping them up and forgetting about them.
Today I am debating whether to go swimming or not. I probably will, trying to find the slot between rush hour and school run when the traffic is more bearable.
Then I am picking Alex up for a 'good luck in year 2' meal at the Harvester at Al's request. I've been looking up the menu and there are things I can have without breaking the calorie bank which is good.
Then it is back home for tuition before relaxing for the evening,
It should be a good day, whatever the weather.
