HARVEST FESTIVAL


We've dug out our winter woollens this week as the days get shorter and colder and we've been busy gathering fruits from the hedgerow to preserve for the winter ahead; sloes for making sloe vodka, rose hips and elderberries for syrup, blackberries and apples for jams, pies and chutneys. 






I couldn't resist these gorgeous colourful heritage carrots from the Farmers' Market yesterday that we made into a heartwarming chicken stew and herby dumplings. It's harvest time and that makes me very happy.
