Going Local

Blackberries and apples picked from a friend's garden in the morning and baked for tea that evening. A stuffed marrow; also from a friend's garden, and we're good to go.

I could make that sound really fresh and wholesome and down-t0-earth wonderful couldn't I? Did I convince you? It's not quite true... We did pick the blackberries and apples, and we did have a rather tasty stuffed marrow, but pudding was a very labour intensive dish; I had to open our pantry cupboard, break off a large piece of chocolate, and divide it up between us. The fruit looks beautiful; is beautiful, and will be cooked in the morning. I'm thinking of competing with Trina's Blueberry Cobbler.

Welcome back! SN camping in a yurt sounds great - is it open to anyone? I can see Little Fish having a blast doing something like that in a few years' time.

Yes absolutely anyone,an amazing sensory experience but VERY EXPENSIVE compared to bog standard camping.Gosh the food you cooked looked gorgeous,and I must say Little Fish is blooming with health,as is Mog.
