The party season
It's been busy in the market in the last few weeks before Christmas with Damson Gin in particular flying off the shelves. Only a few bottles left until next month's decanting. It looks like a bottle of my good good stuff is going to end up in a few stockings. In between the mincepies I think I'll spend much of it behind a wheel barrow, I have 3 tonnes of bark mulch arriving next week for the orchard and about a tonne of manure arriving on the allotment. I shall steel myself to the task fortified by roast potatos and Christmas pudding. And just to limber up and get in the party season Mother's Ruin is going out Morris dancing round Hampstead tonight, starting at the Holly Bush at 7.30 and moving on to the flask at about 8ish.
