I received this photo from my husband while I was enjoying an end of holidays caravan trip with my Mum and the children. While we were taking it easy, he was slogging away, clearing a large patch of our allotment. In theory, there will be fruit trees in there soon (don’t hold your breath, we’ve had them three years).
My Mother-in-Law brought me 10lb of damsons from the Lyth Valley in Cumbria at the weekend. I was very happy to have them. I enjoyed looking at them and thinking about how tasty they would be when turned into jam and gin. I must confess that the epic batch of jam making was not so much fun. Removing the stones from that many damsons is a real pain.
