Photo Article from the Greek Hovel - something that has not happened here in years, maybe decades

When the Mrs and I first came to see the Greek hovel in 2014 ( or was it 2013) it had been abandoned for many many years. And those who remember my early photos will remember why. You just could not live up here. So today we have a groundbreaking first as you can see below.

I have just prepared the first meal cooked at the hovel in what must be years if not decades. Mushrooms and a local orange flavoured sausage for breakfast. It may be no great culinary triumph but it tasted good and it marks a new milestone in bringing this place back to a habitable condition.  Okay I have no plates or forks, so had to eat from the pan using a knife, but it is a start.

Photo article from the Welsh Hovel - the final fruit harvesting

I harvest not just for myself but for the pensioner couple one house up the lane and 95 year old E one house further up. And so we have a small number of crab apples from the two trees I planted this year – enough for one small pot of crab apple jelly, the last of the damsons for gin and then stacks of cooking apples from the orchard by the river and pears from a tree in the centre of the vegetable patch. Then finally some rhubarb which I planted this year…I have promised the family rhubarb crumble this evening. But will also be making apple jam, pear jam and maybe a bit of rhubarb and ginger gin.
