Autumn Harvest

The palette is changing as autumn approaches. The wind is raging,
whipping up leaves, and the quinces have started to tumble. Birds
have been the first to discover the figs and the melons have stopped
their growth and are small – yet deep orange inside and ‘perfumed’.
The grapes have finally been cut and are perfect, juicy and sweet.
Strawberries are abundant, and the last almonds fall as the wind
assists the harvest…

  2. Sounds like the change of the seasons has truly begun. I look forward to reading of autumn colours, winter’s days and blankets of snow soon 🙂

    • Hello Alice, I will look at your Autumn recipes… last night I made an entrée of figs filled with soft goats cheese, wrapped in smoked raw jambon and baked… can recommend it, when the season arrives in Australia…

  3. We have no quince this year – another casualty of our awful weather earlier this year. Enjoy your bounty.

    • Oh dear, thank you, less work for you though(?!)… I am eyeing the quinces which are quickly turning as I finish tomatoes… we are in the clouds today and hope that the humidty will restore some of the grass, you have had endless rain I think… such extremes!
