Summer: Visiting Brogdale

Have you ever tried to clean a half naked five year old with one wet wipe in the middle of a car park because they are covered head to foot in cherry juice? We turned our back on him for five seconds in a fruit shop and discovered he knows how to read the words: TASTE FOR FREE. Yes, we were at Brogdale, stood in the shop tasting cherries and grinning like kids when this happened. We should have known better but at least we got to see Brogdale after we hosed down Little D and tied his hands together before letting him loose in the orchards.

Summer: Cabbage and Kale in the Cottage Garden

We are less than a month away from the autumn equinox and summer has been a hiccuping affair. We have got a harvest but not as much as in previous years, there has been swings and roundabouts, and a feeling that we got a kicking behind the bike sheds but we are still here and we are still growing. We have just cleared a problem patch at the bottom of the garden from this...
