It’s time for them again – the most pleasurable task these days offer: to meander on a bog in all its autumn glory and gather them…
Like tiny cherries but sour – and after the first frost sour-and-sweet. – Cranberries, you correct me now and I insist: granberries – exclusively collected by grandparents despite a stiff back
for the famous (and also exclusive) squash-granberry pannacotta.
After a few frost (-5) nights – just enough to kill off every sensitive plant in the garden and cause morning havoc for the drivers –
it has turned warmish again; we are hoping there would be no frost for a couple of weeks so that we could get fresh funnel chanterelles for another exclusive item
The sensitive plants were harvested (barely) in time
Simply admired and nibbled.
Even sold – this beauty reposes now on display in the venerable market hall of Kuopio.
The majority of the not-so-sensitive vegetables is still to be harvested; maybe even today – if the fog doesn’t clear off. If it does – well, there is yet a good granberry patch downhill to be visited.
