Lots of local goodness from our nearest pick your own fruit farm. I made strawberry jam last month so just picked a few strawberries for puddings. I really wanted to stock up on raspberries for the freezer but I timed it completely wrong, the main crop raspberries have finished and the autumn raspberries won't be ready for a week or two. I did rummage around and picked one punnet.
I also bought some of their vegetables. I don't usually buy courgettes but I have to admit complete defeat this season, my allotment seems to have been invaded by very hungry slugs. As well as my courgette plants they have also munched through my butternut squash plants which is very annoying as I usually have enough squash to make lots of soup in the first part of winter.
Still, we should be getting warmer and drier weather for a bit now. Apparently the jet stream which has been responsible for this prolonged wet and cool spell has now moved northwards to its more usual position for this time of year and we should now get our normal summer weather.
Thank you to Ginny at The Flour Loft for a Blogger Reflection Award. Ginny writes about her family and her textile business she runs with her friend Alice. I enjoy visiting for her pictures of her garden and all the things she and Alice make - lots of "crafty inspiration". I've decided not pass the award on, not because I can't think of six blogs that inspire me but because it would be difficult to choose. I have added a few more blogs to my list of favourite reads, all of which often make me think and reflect, usually about simple living or knitting/sewing or both.
