And voila- summer over, equinox blew by and here we are in autumn!
Right now that means a freezer full of goat, a potager that just won’t stop producing chard and courgettes, and now a nice little pile of pumpkins. I still can’t find the secret chicken nest- so only 1-2 eggs a day. Aaaaand I think the goats have had enough with the milking and I am getting less and less each day (not bad though- it has been pretty good for a full year now!). Time to arrange their ‘date’ with the buck to ‘refresh’.
In addition to gearing up for a lot of goat-based meals (bring on #goatober), autumn is looking to be a reflective time for me, to catch my breath from what feels like a whirlwind summer, and cooler days mean I can linger in the hot kitchen a bit more.
…and it looks like Dom has raided the village fig tree again…so, time for some fig jam.
