Season of mist and mellow fruitfulness...

... as Keats so eloquently wrote.

And it’s true ... apart from the choko we had peaches, passionfruit and a fine crop of olives this year from our garden. I’m going to try pickling the olives. It’s my first time so I’ll see how that goes.

It's a result of the long hot summer.... we aren’t the only ones with fruitful abundances ... Matt, a young work colleague who, like me, enjoys talking about food brought me some of his harvest of chillies. Aren’t they pretty?

I think I feel another curry coming on ......

In Greece they put a sheet under the tree and shake the branches. May save you time. Lucky you to have such a fruitful garden.

hi rosie ... I'm with you on that ... curries are hard to beat.

Hello pi ... I heard they also use a rake to encourage the olives out of the trees ... I am lucky I know ...
