Free food is wonderful
First proper crop of damsons from my friends 4ft high tree.
Gooseberries which I am eating in huge quantities each day. I managed to fit 50 in my mouth in one go. The initial squash once they were in was tasty, but then I was left with 50 bitter skins to chew on.
Blackberries from my garden that I have just picked for breakfast.
My health has stopped me getting much out of this summer but one thing I have been enjoying is home grown and local wild fruit. There's nothing more satisfying than coming home after a hard day and spending some time gathering together little piles of goodies from the garden, fields and hedgerows.
