It’s been another sunny day in the Walled Garden. As you can see from the photo and as I wrote earlier in the week we’ve put protective fleece over the Blackthorn trees, hoping that we can secure a crop of sloe for gin production, this autumn. This photo has inspired me to experiment with sloe gin granite? Sloe gin ice lollies? Sloe gin with gin………… because we really need to increase our gin consumption.
