Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel: last night's fruits of my labour

There are a few firsts in last night’s produce, all of which came from what was once the jungle, but is now a football pitch-sized vegetable garden.

From left to right: strawberries, dessert gooseberries, sweet cherries (from the first trees planted here two and a half years ago), broad beans (a first, and the crop is looking large) and courgettes, which are this year’s first major triumph. The pudding was topped off with ice cream, not homemade, as we (largely Joshua) are polishing off an old tub of vanilla I found buried deep in the freezer. But the first homemade ice cream of the year (elderflower) was a triumph, and, having been up until 1 AM making another vast batch of elderflower cordial and champagne, more homemade ice cream will be made tomorrow.
