The green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England, is home to the cider apple orchards which surround the gardens of Pear Tree Cottage. They enjoy a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury and Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener! This began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but, above all, demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers

Baking for Borders!

My new kitchen toy!
Heavy rain and strong gales definitely stopped play in the garden today so, border work was swapped for baking and I took my new kitchen toy for a test drive! There's something peculiarly comforting about baking on a day when the weather is particularly filthy and rain can be heard beating against the windows.
Of course, it's silly to say that having this fine beast to help in the kitchen isn't amazing but, I'm tinged with a little sadness at selling such a faithful old friend! Anyway, I started off with cheese scones for lunch and, as you can see, even Paul & Mary would have been proud! 

I'm posting a picture of the new beasts's predecessor and he's now being offered for sale complete with attachments on EBay at Kenwood Chef so, feel free to have a look.  As stated on EBay, my only reason for the change was to go for a bowl with bigger capacity.

Good home wanted for Kenneth (note the missing eaten scones!)
