Over the weekend we finally made it down to our neglected allotment.  We went to see how it was looking and what we need to do over the coming weeks.

At the bottom of the allotment was one small, gleaming orange pumpkin!  Isn’t it cute and such a gorgeous amber colour!

I also discovered that one of my Cosmo plants has gone crazy and is covered in hundreds of dusky pink flowers.

I managed to pick a good bunch along with a couple of jolly yellow Calendula’s that have finally flowered.  I think this will be my last homegrown bunch of flowers for this year.

Most bizarrely our strawberry plants are fruiting again – in October!  Quite incredible.  Sadly, the rain we’ve had over the past week has reduced most strawberries to a soggy mush and the remainder have each had a nibble taken out of them by some hungry mouse or other creature.

I picked this pretty bunch of flowers and herbs from my allotment and back garden.  It’s a mixture of pink and white cosmos, orange marigolds, yellow daisies, purple chive flowers, green mint, and delicate white parsley flowers.

I fear this may be one of the last sights of summer as the leaves are already beginning to change colour and fall.

My Latest Instagram Snaps

It might be autumn but Tilly still loves a homemade ice lolly after her tea, so I cooked the blackberries we picked in coconut oil with some fresh figs and elderberries, then blitzed it up and pushed it through a fine sieve to remove the seeds. I mixed in coconut milk (made from coconut cream and water) and popped them into my lolly moulds. This mixture tasted delicious, like a fancy blackberry crumble, autumn in an ice lolly :) #wapf Little fingers checking out the corn we picked earlier. Plus an organic minute steak, buttery mash, and a mug of fresh peas from the farm shop. Only ate the steak :P We also picked a few ears of corn for our tea - I showed her how to pull back the husks and poke a nail into a kernel to check if they were good.
