Any time now the combine harvester will be making its way to the fields which surround our house, soon after that the farmer will be trimming his hedges and any hedgerow bounty will be lost. So we decided to take a stroll around the barley field, along with grandson Harry and Toby the dog.
Harry was delighted to be out with Grandpa and Toby was thrilled to be out with Harry.
The sloes around the perimeter of the field are just about ready to pick so we'll go back in the next couple of days to harvest some ready for making sloe gin. Someone has given me a fabulous recipe for blackberry brandy, that could be my next project. Winter warmers.
Right now duty calls - buttons to be sewn on for Jonny as he gets down to some serious packing and careful checking of luggage allowances.
