Harvest time…

Darlings! It’s blackberry season in our neck of the woods – which always delights us, of course, because it’s the harbinger of Blackberry Nip. Yay!!

blackberry season

Well, Rose and Blackberry Nip to be more precise [Megsie’s added a splash of rose this year and it’s absolutely divine. n(Ed)]

We’ve made some jam on the side – but it’s really all about The Nip, eh.


We’ve just realised that we have completely neglected to post any progress reports re Prisoners of the Crown! Dear oh dear, what a shocking oversight!


So: Megsie is still patiently(!) waiting for her cold-shop, but Ginger is quietly getting underway…
