A friends’ garden, a foragers delight, strewn with walnuts from next doors’ tree.

I find fresh walnuts to be less bitter, softer and have a slightly different taste to shop bought walnuts. Perhaps that’s because I’m cracking and eating them as I go rather than taking the time to cure, crack, soak and store my single carrier bag full of walnuts.

I’d like to say I did something amazing with them but dropping a handful of walnuts into my muesli has been the extent of my creativity!

    Ooh, lucky you! That’s inspired me to ask on Freegle and see if anyone has any spare. How do you preserve them, Nic?

    Hi Lynne, good to hear from you. If you click on the cure, crack, store link there’s a step by step guide from Laurie about preserving them. To be honest I don’t have enough to do anything more than dry them out on a tray so they don’t go mouldy and crack them as I eat them!

Amazing customer service from @tatterhood_ to help make sure her framed Mother poem arrived in time for my Mum's 70th birthday.  So many other wonderful poems available as postcards and her new book is also in stock on her website.  Go check her out, she's ace :0)
#motherhood #70thbirthdaygift Roadies.  When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.  Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!

#welovelego #unpluggedchildhood #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog November 2011 on an unbelievably sunny day, with an allotment flourishing with green manure plants and an enormous 7 month bump.  As you can imagine I didn't get much gardening done that day!  Seems crazy how quickly the years have gone, our bump will be 6 next week!
