the herbs have left the cupboard

I ran out of pears before I ran out of ways with pears, so a major win there, even if the pears didn't ripen very well in the wet autumn and many got smashed off the tree by wind and rain. I think my favourite treatment was Boozy Blue Pears in dark chocolate cups, although Pear and Butternut Squash Soup came a close second. I still have a bowlful to go, although that may go into freezer bags as future pie.

The tomatoes are still rattling on, too, although the leaves are yellow and the slugs have discovered that they can eat the red ones :( I'd definitely go for this variety again, though (gardener's delight cherry) as they were a doddle to grow and have been super productive.

I still haven't got round to posting that thing where you put all your shoes in a circle and photograph them, but I did end up clearing out my herb cupboard, which provides a similar note-adding opportunity. Somehow I think this is a shot less likely to attract internet creeps, though. Unless they're really, really into marjoram.
