It is harvest time here at the homestead in Grossenaspe....apples, more apples, plums, more plums. I was up on the ladder at 6:30am on Saturday picking plums before breakfast. After breakfast I had to clean and depit the plums.... we ´put loads into the freezer and I kept out some fresh and baked a pflaumenn kuchen (plum cake). I also made an apple crumble, the rest of the apples are made into fresh apple juice! There's nothing like fresh juice and fresh fruit right off the tree.
This morning Lars and I were up at 6am and went to the forest mushroom picking. Fresh forest mushrooms smell so good....just like hazel nuts! We had breakfast when we got home at 9am and then I got things underway to prepare our Sunday Dinner... I cooked for the entire family this afternoon. 90% of the it....farm fresh! including the eggs from a neighbour. Fresh pasta with homemade vegetable sauce, fresh caesar salad, including the dressing and handmade bread rolls. Followed by...plum cake! We're stuffed!!
The weather has been nice, sort of muggy tonight, we're in for a thunder storm. It's been on average 25 to 26 C during the day and cools right down at night to 10C.
Well that's it for now... I'm off to digest and rest :)
