As I've mentioned in posts before, our tiny garden does not lend itself to growing produce. It has two large sycamore trees at the end, as well as being northeast facing and very damp (a slug and snail paradise). Squirrels live in the trees and like to come and dig things up, along with some naughty neighbourhood cats who thought my raised bed would make a fantastic toilet over the winter.
My family recently moved not so far away and their garden is perfect for growing all sorts of things. They like to grow a small amount of veggies, but really just wanted me to do most of it for them. The perfect fruit and veggie relationship; I get to learn and they get to eat!

The following day Kyle, Doug and I returned, equipped with bags to pick the bountiful crop.

This is how I felt when we went for a Sunday stroll at Lady Canning's Plantation, just on the outskirts of Sheffield. With a mixture of coniferous and deciduous woodland that open out onto rolling moorland carpeted in heather, it wasn't exactly hard to fall for the place.
