Oh it is so not a gardening day today - cold and very wet. So dealing with the harvest it is. A big pot of minestrone soup has been made with some of my onions, garlic, beans, tomatoes, potatoes and basil. I reserved some some for supper tonight and froze the rest. I picked a great bowlful of ripe plums yesterday so they will get frozen this afternoon. If it is still cold after that I will make a great batch of fruit scones and freeze some too. Forecast is for better day tomorrow and I will have the stuffed green wheeliebin emptied tomorrow morning so will be eager to fill it up again. The solidago is showing bright yellow up the garden and I always think of that as an autumn flower.
