Garden 2020

Well, it's a bit late to be reporting on our gardening activities in 2020 - though we had plenty of time around the house for such things this year!

We managed a really decent crop of potatoes and carrots...






... stacks of strawberries and raspberries....

...



...and even a couple of decent peppers in my office window.

There was plenty of rhubarb. Enough to make a crumble, two bottles of wine, some sugary raw rhubarb sticks, and a bottle of juice:

We also had a decent showing of flowers this year...

...but the star seems to have been the one sunflower that reached over 10 feet (and we hard about ten much shorter ones)



The girls made some bird feeders. You can possible make out a blue tit and a couple of sparrows here:

I also though it worth sharing the diligent work of our estate's hedge trimming people....


...and  our fine haul of elderberries from near the river. These made some cordial and six bottles of reasonably nice wine. Hurray!
