Windfalls and wild gatherings


Autumn always reminds me of getting ready for something…..the days here are still warm and sunny (except for today which is rainy) and the light has changed, it’s even bluer, except for today ‘cos it’s raining.
The nights are a bit chilly and fires have been lit.
Gathering stuff from the wilds is our favourite thing to do, storing or preserving and putting to bed. Lots of chestnuts being eaten by the fire, cooked up apples and quinces with custard! risottos of wild mushrooms…all sounds very English don’t it?
There is still plenty of work to be done, the brassicas are in for the winter, green manures coming up, broad beans and onions and garlic planted. Huge bonfire has been made but not lit. Still waiting for the peppers, aubergines and tomatoes to finish so I can tidy them away……
