A change in Season

Autumn is most definately here, there is a chill in the air and alhough this weekend has been beautiful with bright sunshine, here at The White House we can feel the end of the year fast approaching.

I took a little time out in the garden on Saturday afternoon and I’m almost at the end of the harvest.  But there was still enough to keep me busy over the weekend.

  • We ate our first and last meal of sweetcorn: the first I have grown
  • We harvested our first crop of artichokes: Rod thought they were a bit of an affectation but although fiddly to cook and eat, they really did taste good with garlic mayo and melted butter
  • I picked the last of the beetroot and pickled them: two quite big jars to look forward to with ham and cold turkey at Christmas
