I have some quince that a lovely customer has just brought in, with the promise of more - and every surface in The Old Smithy is covered with boxes of cooking apples - another customer.
So there will be plenty to photograph and write about in the days ahead.
I have also heard that our shipment of maslin pans - especially made for us - is just about to dock, so we should have a very special offer for you by the end of October. Just in time for Christmas presents as well. I will blog and tweet about it but they will be at a rock bottom price for a limited time - and then at a modest price so perfect if you have always wanted one, or, indeed, if you have one already but need more!
