In a field, at the back of the house, we planted up extra flowers for the bees to give them an extra boost before winter. They will be flowering until late October/November.
The blackberry crop is going to be big this year!
In our new hedge, some chestnuts still growing!
The orchard has a lot less apples this year. We had ten tons last year, but nothing like that this year!
Why so few apples this year? What will you do with all of those blackberries? Jam? Syrup? Ice cream? And your own chestnuts! How wonderful. xohReplyDelete
The April frosts killed off a lot of the apple blossom, so we have less apples! As for the blackberries, I make pies and tarts normally, but I never had so many - so I am looking for new recipes!!
I think you're going to have to work hard this fall, right? I love those flower fields. Have a good weekend!! :O)ReplyDelete
Yes, I will be quite busy! The fields are pretty and I get to have lots of flowers for the house!! Have a fun weekend.
What a beautiful field of flowers. So much colour there, and free flowers for cutting. My apple tree has also produced nothing this year. I don;t know if it's due to the snow in April or if it is just dying. But those blackberries - yum. Lots of opportunities for baking/preserving/eating there.ReplyDelete
Hello Ivan. It is good to meet you and thanks for dropping by my blog today.ReplyDelete
You 'got me' as soon as I saw you were a chef! In my next life I hope that is what I am! Love cooking, baking and learning all about food.
Then there were the blackberries! Only my favourite berry.
So this is going to be a pleasure to follow along with you. Oh yes, my ancestors are from France.
Have a great Sunday.
Thank you and yes, I don't need to buy flowers at this time of year! I have a lot of blackberries and am try to think of something new to cook!
Hope you are enjoying this hot weather this weekend too.
