You wouldn’t think that there would be much produce about at this time of the year. However, look what has come our way just this last couple of days – hazelnuts, apples, olives, pink peppercorns and medlars (they are not rotting despite outward appearances – they are bletting in readiness for making medlar liqueur). Then there’s the last of the crop of rhubarb that’s about to be turned into sparkling rhubarb.
I’d like to say there were lemons too, from our tree. However, one very determined possum managed to get through the netting and ate almost every single one – not the flesh, just the skin. Very disappointing, but I guess they are hungry (I am trying to be nice here).
