Many of you have something to answer for...I've seen your blog posts. I have had the conversations. I know you've been picking berries, making pie, cooking jam, whilst we wait
I've written about the microclimate before. Its cold in my back garden. It rains a lot. While everyone else is making ice cream, I am usually still eating soup.
You know what, I don't usually mind THAT much. I like the cold. I don't mind the rain. I love the moodiness of my chosen homeland. Except for this time of year when there is the horrible lag between other's tales of strawberry jammy-ness and my own green fruit.
But, soon we will be having our breakfasts straight off the plants...if the children and birds don't get them first.
