|tiny wild damsons|
|1lb washed & dried damsons|
On the way back from picking the damsons I found my first blackberries of the season. There weren’t many and although they were large and looked tasty they were quite sour. I poached them slowly with a pear that refused to ripen and had them with homemade pancakes for breakfast this morning DELISH!
We finally left Barton Moorings this morning but before we could go anywhere we had to de-spider the boat. After clearing the plants off the roof Roger used the hosepipe and sweeping brush to scrub it clean. I’d planned to wash the sides when we moored in Bidford but we decided to go to The Bridge for lunch instead. The meal was superb, again. It’s now raining so the cleaning will have to wait till morning.
