Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness


Apples on our tree this afternoon


Well not really.  We are having bizarrely unseasonable whether here in the South of England this week.  Driving along in the car this morning all the trees are turning and swathes of leaves are dropping in the breeze but the temperature has been hovering around 30 degrees centigrade (that's 94 for you Americans).  It's all coming from France (or Turkey - they don't seem to be able to agree).  Over the weekend it was hotter here than in Mexico, Spain or Cuba! We had the hottest October day since record began; and that's about 350 years!  Phew!  Nice to see all the girls giving their little outfits one last outing, though!


Trouble is we need a taller ladder!


Never mind, the wet summer followed by a sunnier autumn is doing wonders for the fruit in Triple P's garden.  Our chillis, which have been relentlessly green all summer are now turning red, we've had a few strawberries and the apples and grapes have been the best we have ever seen.


The grapes are looking good too


Back to normal weather later this week sadly.
