There is still lots going on in the garden at Shoestring Cottage – the cosmos are beautiful, the trees are gold and red, the red hot pokers are at their best. I have tomatoes, spinach and cabbages to eat, and there is some chard coming along too. The courgettes and beans are done.
The pumpkins are tiny! We usually grow them from seed but this year decided to buy a couple of plants and they are rubbish! Hardly any fruit on them and what there is won’t make a Halloween lantern let alone my favourite pumpkin soup. I will have to grab a couple from the supermarket for a soup making session.
Speaking of fruit, we do have apples for the first time this year which are delicious. We have had about 10 already from our two tiny trees. I also have a bag donated by a friend so I will be making an apple cake later. I haven’t baked for ages and Mr S is feeling deprived!
I like nothing more than a walk through the woods on a sunny autumn day. I am hoping we can get out today. Mr S has been struggling with sciatica and not his usual energetic self. So that is today’s plan – apple cake and an autumn walk. How are you spending your Sunday?
