It is the season of mellow fruitfulness, well sort of! We’ve been busy tidying up the veg patch, and getting out and about a bit, so let’s see what is in this week’s top five:
At the weekend we went exploring a bit of North Wiltshire, we stopped in the little town on Calne. The town has a lovely heritage quarter, and the Church of St Mary is in the centre. A pleasant place to stop on on little adventure.
With an abundance of tomatoes ripening at once Calum decided to make some tomato chutney on Sunday. We love a good pickle or chutney, and luckily Calum enjoys making them. It is a win-win situation.
We are very excited about the apples ripening in the garden, perhaps we will need to make an apple and blackberry pie. A perfect late summer pudding.
We take Hettie for her walks on Horsell Common, It is famously the site of the first martian invasion in H.G.Wells’ novel The War of the Worlds. We are yet to encounter any martians but we do bump into this cheery cow, part of a small herd kept on the common to help with managing the site.
Herb Lester’s A London Pub for Every Occasion is one of our favourite books. We are currently using this a resource to check out some of the most historic pubs in the city for a future blog post. Keep your eyes peeled later in the autumn.
