Bother That Storm

Remember the weather saying at the beginning of the month?



  "September Blow Soft 'til the Fruits' in the Loft"


 Well it didn't blow soft and this trug full of apples and pears were laying on the grass under the trees  yesterday morning after Storm Aileen had passed through, but as that was our only damage I think we got off lightly.
We spent a while preparing them for the freezer, so nothing wasted.

  1. My home is about a mile away from the sea at the back and just over a mile at the front. Our garden is quite exposed and my first job every morning for the last two weeks is to pick up windfalls. I'm ripening some of the rock hard pears in the conservatory, some are in the garage to keep longer.

    1. Our pears look awful but when ripe are quite tasty. The Conference pears on the other tree survived the wind thank goodness

  2. The storm and the birds have shaken a lot of the eating apples off the little tree in the stony garden, so I am going to be making mincemeat this morning. At least you have room in your freezer for stewed fruit. Mine is filling up quickly again.

    1. The freezer is very full, I shall have to have a sort out before putting any more in

  3. At least you were able to use them! Mum said it hadn't been that bad where she was, a few branches down, but she didn't hear a lot of anything. Weather must not have been too bad - she's caught up on most of her wash lol

  4. I left two off our cooker tree on the ground and the blackbirds finished them off in no time. The rest I have been using up as stewed apple with custard - something I love.

    1. We have hardly any blackbirds - just dozens of sparrows and nothing is eating the rotten apples yet - maybe when it turns colder
