It’s no secret that I love pottering about in my garden ~ particularly growing fruit and veg in raised beds and pots, as you can see here.
Throughout the year I nurture my crops with a variety of natural fertilisers ~ compost; manure; powdered eggshells; coffee grounds, the occasional dressing of Epsom Salts and buckets of tender, loving care. I also collect waste water to keep the soil moist ~ but due to the capricious British weather I didn’t have to use the hose at all this year. Every cloud ~ quite literally ~ had a silver lining! 😉
This morning my garden repaid my efforts with a super~nurturing breakfast. Strawberries; blueberries; tayberries and loganberries, harvested and frozen in the summer, added a welcome burst of sunshine to this soggy mid~winter day.
And, although you can’t see them too well in this photo (and it’s too late to take another,) I can assure you that the ‘fruits of my labours’ tasted yummy! 😋
