Autumn Productivity

2 Apr

Autumn is a nice busy time of year round here. (as compared to say, Christmas, which is a way TOO busy time). Harvesting, bottling, weeding out the garden for the winter crops, there’s always lots to do, but the sort of work that leaves you with a result you can admire for at least a few weeks. (Unlike sweeping my kitchen floor, which usually lasts about two minutes).  I’m always dreaming of bottling a whole year’s worth of tomatoes. Of course, this year, it didn’t happen again, but I did bottle maybe three months worth, which was better than nothing!

We also had a lot of plums to pick.  Even after we’d feasted and caked and stewed them, there was plenty left to make plum and cinnamon jam. Yummo!
