Happy Harvest

I love the feeling of satisfaction at this time of the year when all the fruits of our labours in the garden are gathered in! This is the extent of my pumpkin crop – not great considering the number of plants I had but probably enough! There is lots to gather at the moment – damsons, apples, sloes and other hedgerow goodies. I attended a fantastic course on Tuesday organised by Shropshire Hills AONB, in the morning we walked the hedgerows around Craven Arms collecting fruits and berries and in the afternoon made goodies from our bounty. I am now going to make hedgerow jam, butter and ketchup!
