and while we’re at it…the Monster’s Gift…

and while we’re at it, a photo of the Monster’s full sweep taken late yesterday evening from the vantage of the ladies hive hill as we once again helped ourselves to some of the fruits of our labours: another 6 lb of gooseberries (red and green), rhubarb, bunching salad onions and some beetroot…we’ll spend a lot of evenings over the coming weeks distributing the harvest across family, friends and colleagues, whilst jamming the fruits and preserving the beets, and hopefully making some chutneys…
