Summer or autumn?

Daytime temperatures are in the 30s, and the aubergine plants are flowering again:

and there are small aubergines growing:

But we’ve picked the first of the pumpkins to store for the winter, five that we thought would be butternut squashes but which seem to be a hybrid:

and we’re making the first batch of membrillo with windfall quinces (more on this when it’s finished bubbling away on the hob):

  1. Mmm, membrillo, fantastic stuff! We finally had a taste of summer weather last week but today we are back to coolness, the fog has barely cleared from the valley and it’s breezy today. I hope next year we have a real summer…

    The pumpkins are pretty, I hope they turn out to be tasty too.
