It was hard work but at least we are now prepared for the cooler months ahead. Another thing done off the Autumn list.
Here's hoping that they won't need chopping down any further, some of them did look a little big for the stove. I left them to one side...my son in law will be visiting soon.
The hedgerow at the bottom of the garden is full of blackberries. I have already taken several pounds of fruit and put them in the freezer for Autumnal puddings. There was still a lot of fruit that needed picking so off I went and collected a load more to make jam.
The glass jars were put into water and boiled to sterilize them and then the process of jam making began.
Four jars of blackberry jam ready for consumption when a taste of summer is needed.
I also gathered in some of the ripening tomatoes and the beans. The freezer is fit to burst with the amount of produce I have been squirreling away.
I just need this break in the weather to continue for awhile so that I can get on top of the beds and mow the lawn but a cup of tea and a slice of cake is needed right now. Tomorrow is another day... Hopefully, there will be a little more sunshine to come in this the twilight of the Summer.
See you soon.
