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

There are a few firsts in what I provided for the family last night 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 big triumph. The pudding was topped off with ice cream, not home made as we ( largely Joshua) are polishing off an old tub of vanilla I found buried deep in my freezer. But the first home made 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 home made ice cream will be made tomorrow.
