Spent the last few days doing maintenance around the garden, composting and planting spring flowering bulbs. Runner beans and greenhouse plants still producing large quantities although tomatoes are reaching the end. Picked first load of apples yesterday. Very different from last year when we had boxes full of windfall everyday. This year far fewer windfall and much larger fruit! Spent today making jam, chutney and pickling. Collection of jars is growing. Fridge and freezer will soon be full. Planning to try new fermenting jars tomorrow on the last of the summer cabbage.
