  • Major George Wilkinson MBE
    on Oct 6, 2010
    My dear father in law, George Wilkinson, has died at the age of 94.  I've only known George during the last 12 or so years of his long life, but it was a privilege. I can't tell you about his military career, of which he was so proud, - he would...
  • Style Makeover
    on Sep 25, 2010 in beans blogging apples
    In case anyone thought I'd disappeared into thin air, I am in fact still here, but have undergone an inadvertent style makeover. I thought I would try one of Blogger's new template designs, just for a bit of a change, and of course, it made my blog a...
  • Ink Caps
    on Sep 15, 2010 in fungi
    Where we've had trees cut down to improve light levels, we get an annual crop of these pretty little Ink Cap type fungi. They appear almost like magic, overnight, usually after heavy rain has soaked the ground, and on the area where the roots of the...
  • Last Honey Harvest

    on Sep 8, 2010

  • Pheasant And Ham Pie Recipe
    on Sep 6, 2010 in game recipes
    I have a few pheasants in the freezer that I needed to use up and the remains of a bacon collar joint in the fridge, not to mention a mountain of plums, and so this recipe is the happy result. It's a hearty pie but I think the plums just lift it out...
  • Glass Of Mud Anyone?
    on Sep 1, 2010 in fruit garden apples
    What could be nicer than a glass  of freshly pressed apple juice. Juice from my own apples, pressed by me, grown by me, no chemicals, no additives, no airmiles, no packaging, truly organic, sounds great doesn't it. Well it is great of course, but t...
  • Harvest Time
    on Aug 30, 2010 in fruit garden
    Now seems like a good time to post a few pics of the current seasons crops. I've been really busy with family stuff for the last few weeks so the garden is groaning under the weight of stuff that needs picking and storing. We've done very well on...
  • Glad All Over

    Horizontal Glad The recent much needed rain has caused the usual late summer havoc in my garden, runner beans have fallen over on to the courgettes who must be wondering who turned the lights out, but won't be prevented from growing at a rate of knot...

    If you have a family of what my mother calls "good eaters", (as if it was a kind of skill like dentistry or playing the oboe) like our family, having  a tray of a great standby bake like Millionaire's Shortbread in the fridge pleases e...
