What we did today..

 

Sasha wanted to stay in and finish her ironing  (she doesn’t get this from me) ..

Rufus wasn’t too happy about that..

but Joe and Pintucks were desperate to get out and play and in the sunshine. Even though they know play = work in harvest season 🙂 Today was all about picking what we grow. Some things are easy to pick..

..and some need a bit more effort

and team work.

 

 

The plums are delicate so Joe wheel-barrowed them to the basket for careful packing.

The blackberries are ready too. These are the thornless ones we grow on the allotment.

..and the strawberries are having a final fling but they’re not ripe yet.

..but lots of things are ready to pick and bring home to freeze and make jams and chutneys with. I hope Sasha’s finished her ironing. Look’s like she’ll have another job when we get home 🙂

  1. I have to agree with Steve That short hair style on Pintucks looks great and the frnaces Trickett outfit looks great on her.
    How lucky to have a doll who likes to get the ironing done! and all the produce is looking delicious , I’m off to do the jigsaw, which I love doing.
    enjoy the week ahead 🙂
