Winter Solstice at David's food forest in Gleniffer


We had another great turnout for the Gleniffer winter solstice with David Pepper.

Tables were groaning under an abundant diversity of deliciousness, so we got straight into lunch by the blazing firepit.

David took some of us on a garden ramble and then ... 
A sudden downpour.

Well we have been lucky with the weather on our garden visits up til now, but apparantly it has not rained enough this year!

A hasty covering of seeds and yummies, then we cosied up under cover to wait it out. Us gardeners won't cut short the merriment for mere rain!

Thanks David for another memorable solstice.
