Blackberry Crumble

We picked our first blackberries for the season. So, it's crumble time!
No extra sugar added to the berries, as they are sweet enough.
Just a dollop of cream. Of course. :)

Today's harvest

Tomatoes galore! A bowl of crab apples - the kind you can actually eat as they are! Chillies, a zucchini and cucumber.Approx. 10kg of apples (Abbas).A whole basket of basil (Sweet & Lettuce Leaf).I love this time of the year, when there is so much to harvest. And the decisions, how best to preserve the bounty for leaner times. :)

...going to seed. Photo taken against the bright sun. You can clearly see the little seeds in their 'casings'.This time the sun is behind me.

Today's harvest

The tomatoes are slowly ripening up. The zucchinis have slowed down a little during these very mild (cool-ish) days. No complaints there, as we still have a few of those in the fridge. The sweet corn is still delicious, but coming to an end soon. But I have another bed of sweet corn growing nicely which will be ready for harvest in a few weeks' time.
