Duncansby Head stacks are on the most northerly point of the British mainland, a higher latitude than John’O’Groats. On this Summer’s day the mist was pouring from the land to the sea, unusually. Yet blue skies over the North Sea. Yet the stacks or pinnacles are so majestic and give a good sign of coastal erosion.
These giant pinnacles of rock shoot out of the coastal floor and covered with seagulls nesting.
My joy of gardening is seeing beautiful and tasty bounty harvested from garden to plate, sandwich or pot straight from the ground. This has been a good year with plenty sunshine and rain. This list includes:
Three sackfuls of potato
Six weeks of daily pickings of lettuce
Six weeks of cucumber
Endless tomatoes Friday from the vine
Four weeks of garden peas
A small carrot hill
Garlic (not matured yet)
Leeks (not mature)
The harvest bounty also provides the pleasure of sharing with family, friends and neighbours. Of course I have photographs…
