Autumn is rolling around the corner and there is a definite nip in the evening air. This has made me think of the inevitable winter freeze which will need warding off. Luckily I discovered this monster lurking in the undergrowth.
I have every intention of carving this up and making soup with it, so when winter snaps I shall be ready with a nourishing pumpkin and coconut soup to sup on. Ha, take that winter!
Another helpful autumn crop are the raspberries. For some reason every year my summer raspberries seem to be non-existent (even though I have more bushes) and I usually always have a bumper crop of autumn one’s.
I’d like to blame ‘the fairies’ but I suspect that the birds and their migratory disappearance after the summer sunshine fades might be a more likely explanation.
