My goodness harvesting can be exhausting. i dug up a washing up bowlful of King Edwards, picked a baking bowlful of plums for jam making tonight, 8 long runner beans for supper and a huge bouquet of flowers to sit in the now almost empty conservatory waiting for the glaziers to board up the damage. Thirty various coloured tomatoes and two peppers were brought in this morning so i may make some delicious soup for the winter while I am in the kitchen making jam. I propped up the Conference pear branch that had hit the deck in the potager because of the weight of its crop with a picnic chair.My garden looks like the pictures of the Garden of Eden you used to see in old Bibles! I have eaten six plums today so must stop.
