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

Jammy or what?

Weighing the crop!

Chris enjoying his mulberry jam!
How could I not write a quick post on this? A couple of weeks ago, Chris rolled up with a basket of the most glorious freshly picked mulberries. We could hardly believe our eyes! They were crying out to made into the world's most delicious jam. \having done that, I knew it the next step had to be a baking session in order to achieve the very best cream tea ever. Using my favourite Mary Berry recipe, I made the lightest scones. That only left the easy bits - some authentic Cornish clotted cream and a pot of Lady Grey tea.

The finished product all sealed and labelled.

Now THAT's a cream tea!!

Et voila!  2 whole jars have been consumed already - gulp!
