Permaculture Cottage ~ The Pantry

Sweetcorn harvested over the weekend…this is the native American corn, called ‘Painted Mountain,’ and is very colourful!

I will save some of the corn seeds for planting next year…

Heaps and heaps of windfalls… planting apple trees is cheap and easy and all you do is wait for the windfall! Ha! Ha!…I love it. Simple, easy and so very permaculture!

And more apples in the pantry…buckets of them…free food, good food and not a corporation in sight!

Free-range eggs with deep orange yolks and pumpkins in the pantry today…it’s starting to fill up as the  harvest comes in…

Bountiful Blackcurrants…waiting to be turned into jam, chutney, wine et al, rest in the freezer in the Pantry.

Permaculture Cottage Daily ~ Water in the Well…

Continuing to collect windfall apples today. Making a lot of apple crumble. I use my own recipe that uses half and half wholemeal flour and oats, so it’s really heart healthy too.

 Tomatoes and Calendula…knocked over by the wind, but continuing to grow and ripen…late, but sweet!

And there remains a long list of tasks to complete before the onset of Winter…which will come early this year…October/November.

Today, at Bealtaine Cottage. Still, sometimes sunny, mostly cloudy, but always  very beautiful.

Plenty of water in the well…
