It has been a great year for my Bramley
apple tree. I think the long hard Winter helped to develop lots of fruiting buds on the tree. There have been plenty of windfalls, but this weekend I picked the perfect fruit that was ripe (it came off easily when pulled). These will be laid carefully in the cool, dark garage. They should keep until next Spring.
I found these plastic trays being thrown out at my local garden centre. They are just the job for storing apples!
I pulled up the first of my Oarsman
leeks for lunch today. Lots of length to the stem, and beautifully tender and flavoursome.
I steamed some Tromba D'Albegna
squash too, easy to peel and slice. I steamed the squash, but have to say that although the flavour was fine, it was quite watery.
