Bits and pieces

Probably one of the last pickings of chillies and capsicum.
One lone Black Salsify (Scorzonera).

Isn't the Chocolate Capsicum in the middle gorgeous?!
Golden Nuggets. Hmm.... what to do with those in the next few months? They do not keep as well as pumpkins.

There are some other tiny pumpkins in the box. Definitely not big enough for soup - thank goodness!

Granny Smith was shedding her load. She was very stressed this summer. One big branch broke off in the height of the heat wave. Another branch broke off later. We had to pick the apples far too early. Normally they are ready in about July. So... lots of very tart grannies around here!

They're not the only tart things around here. Another is the old Tart who lives across the road. LOL. :-)

It would be nice if the chocolate capsicum actually tasted of chocolate as well. Pumpkin muffins maybe, as you are obviously over pumpkin soup :)

Pip, yes we are over pumpkin soup, how did you guess? ;)
Pumpkin muffins. That sounds good. Must have a look for a recipe. Can you recommend one?
