Silent Sunday

Silent Sunday this week is all about our little bit of paradise, the orchard and potager. It is hard work but worth every back ache, rose thorn scratch, nettle sting and broken fingernail. I can't wait to start eating from the garden again - come on cherries, tomatoes, beans, courgettes (zucchini), raspberries, strawberries, onions, garlics, beetroots, plums, pears, peaches, apples, quince, squash, pumpkins, hazelnuts, walnuts, Brussels sprouts... I'm waiting!
