Anything considered, wasabi, cut flowers, ... So long as I can sell the produce and make a buck off it, then I should be trying to use the land as intensively as possible, no?…

autumn's abundance

the American tradition of thanksgiving and English harvest festivals all makes sense when I reflect on the past few weeks. Been given apples, pears, plums, quinces, free range eggs, harvesting my saffron and not even begun to prepare my garlic for sharing and planting, been so busy making jam, jellies, quince paste, bottling apples and blackboy peaches.
