Here comes the sun…and rain again.


May 14, 2013 by Hannah

I’ve been out and about over the passed week, hardening off my veg and making bowls ice cream out of all the eggs and cream we have.


Runner beans planted out and enjoying the rain!

The ice cream is due to the fact that we are minding a friend’s Jersey cow who generously supplies us with about 10 litres of full fat milk a day. The freezer is now the custodian of chocolate fudge, mint, raspberry and vanilla ice cream. The ice cream recipe is in my pages under ‘Reliable Recipes’ if your interested.


3 days worth of cream put into context

I have a funny feeling though that the freezer’s custodianship may soon be passed over to my dessert tummy, which is at it should be.

    I won’t even sowing any runner bean seeds for another week or so at least.
    I bet that ice cream is absolutely delicious! xx

      It is:) I sowed mine towards the end of May last year and they worked out very well, I suppose I just wanted to see what would happen if I put them out a bit earlier this year. I have White Lady and Scarlet Emperor.

    Sounds like a delicious problem! I am starting all my beans and squashed this week, I love sowing them, they germinate so fast, fingers crossed they won’t get eaten by slugs!

  4. Homemade ice cream is absolutely amazing; I am sure that will be in my dreams tonight.
