We’ve Been Open!

Sorry for the delay in posting but the last few weeks have been rather busy preparing for our Open Days which happened last weekend. Altogether we had over 1,000 visitors through our garden during the weekend. What’s more they seemed to like it so that was very pleasing.

Just a couple of pictures of the event here:

Meanwhile the harvesting has had to go on – though I left lots on show for the visitors.  So after the Open Days I harvested pounds of mangetout peas and broad beans. plus lots of redcurrants (with some whitecurrants) as I’d remembered to net the bushes as they started to ripen:

Quite the best harvest of redcurrants I’ve had – and just tonight they’ve been converted to redcurrant jelly – very nice too.

Oh yes and I’ve harvested a cucumber.

That’s all for now – more when I have time…
