Belated Happy Birthday!

Monday was the 4th birthday of my blog, who thought I would still be writing it 4 years down the line! I thought today was its 4th birthday but mistakenly wrote down Wednesday 19th October (when it started) and without thinking, thought it was today. Come on brain wake up!

The final preserving for winter took the shape of some pickled onions. We don't do them every year but both fancied some:
We also picked the last of the pears off our small trained pear tree - a Comice I think):
Four at a time are left out to ripen, the rest are in the fridge. We still have about 10 to eat. They are a beautiful pear (far nicer than the prolific red ones we grow) - nice and crisp with a good clean taste.

Now, time to think about Christmas on the food preparation front. DS, DDil and our grand-dogs should be with us this year, which will be great!

  6. Congrats on your blogaversary! The pickled onions look so good. Can you share the recipe. We can get them here in the British shop but they are very expensive, over $10.00 ( around 5 pounds I think)for a small jar.

  9. Happy blog birthday!
    Lots of blogs I read are starting to mention Christmas.
    With three small children I really should get my head out of the sand and get organised.....maybe next week?!
    Our pear tree didn't have many fruits this year but they were delicious. Our cooking apple tree was laden with fruit and then a few days ago just decided to drop them all on the floor - queue a mad dash outside to pick as many up as were keepers!

    1. Our small amount of apples fell this year as they had all been 'got' at by the bugs. Once chopped though they were lovely.

  10. Happy Blogaversary, the time goes by so quickly doesn't it.

    I have loved reading your posts for years now, although I can't remember when I first started following you (that makes me sound like a stalker ... lol).

    I love your display of pears!!
