Been out picking sloes today, obviously some will find their way into a gin bottle but as its such a bumper crop I'm going to try some other recipes as well.
Had to pick our way around the ladybirds which were also plentiful.
Silks was doing sterling job as "head whippet in charge of sloes"
Wifor on the other hand was off on his own hedgerow harvesting mission... unfortunately it seems a fence has got in his way and this was the sad and somewhat wobbit whippet that returned.
We quickly packaged him off to the vets for stitching, rather worryingly as we left they said they hoped to fit him in this afternoon...
