Week’s menu for September – No 2

food for a week in September

“Early in the month, summer feels like it’s making its mind up about exactly when to leave and everything on the smallholding seems to sense a change coming. The animals become less active, the trees look less upright and lively, and the chickens lay less frequently. The vigour and chirpiness of spring and summer seem to be becoming loose and tatty, like favourite jeans aging.”

-Mark Diacono, A Year at Otter Farm

 

With September the year shifts into autumn so we see the last of the courgette flowers and corn on the cob and quail come into season.
