I made the decision yesterday to have a *big* push this week and get the house well in order before the winter, so I've started. The landing is now clear, decluttered, dusted, window panes and surrounds cleaned, ready for redecorating before the end of the month, and new curtains made too I hope; I've yet to choose a colour scheme, but that's generally a bit more pleasant than the actual hard work bit LOL
However, I should be in the kitchen, dealing with today's produce from the garden:
The tomatoes, after a slow start are producing well, but steadily, which is a good thing in a "dealing with them all" capacity; there were two lots of these this morning, waiting to be made into sauce I should think, for bottling for later in the year. The autumn raspberries are the same, obligingly regular, which makes life a bit easier - these ones will be for a pudding tomorrow I think. The nuts came off one of the hazels in the garden; the small crop on the top trees seems to have been nobbled now, but I'm grateful for all of these - they're really good this year, and should last a while - some are destined for a pudding with the raspberries - more on that later, with a recipe, when it's done.
