All Talk And No Show

Way back in March, my beautiful quince bush was laden with blossoms . . .

And after all that hullabaloo, this is what the bush produced . . .


There'll be no quince jam or chutney in this cook's kitchen this fall.

  1. What a shame Christine, nature does funny things sometimes.
    Didn't get your bread blog or risotto blog. Thought you had been away again?!!

  2. Goodmorning Anne,
    I certainly haven't been blogging with much regularity lately, but if you're subscribed to receive my posts, you should have gotten them. I was having a tiff with my email this past week but that shouldn't have had an effect on your subscription. I can only say to try subscribing again. In the meantime, I'll see if I can figure it out. Thanks for being one of my loyal readers!

  3. Aww, too bad. Hopefully next year?

  4. Cynthia,
    I certainly hope so. As I think about it, this quince bush has had some off-again-on-again years in the past. Hope, as they say, springs eternal.

  5. I can only say that my cherry tomatoes did well this year.

    And my bridal wreath doubled in size.

    But I cannot eat that...

  6. boo-hoo-! What a shame! That poor little fellow had to be in that bush all by himself~maybe he will have some friends next year and you can all make jam! Have missed your posts, been away. It is hard in the summer to keep up! Trust you are well!

  7. My quince bush was a non-starter this year too. Sympathies. :)

  8. But my goodness, that one lonely quince has such grand character! Love it.

  9. It is cute, in an ugly sort of way, isn't it, Tanna?

    Sympathies back to you, Wendy. I so look forward to a good crop of quince.

    So nice to hear from you, Jann. I am well and look forward to reading more of your wonderful posts.

    Well, Mimi, cherry tomatoes are a good thing! And the bridal wreath doubling in size - let's see... maybe it's an omen of good wishes for my son and his fiancee who are getting married this Sunday? I'll run with that... :)
