Eating from the garden


So the season of mellow fruitfulness is upon us, and I graze; drunk with delight and gratitude. I have raspberries, plums, figs and…

what IS this?


Whatever it is, it has rather taken over the peas. It tastes quite nice, though, especially stir-fried.  And there’s plenty of it.

The peas are still fighting back.


These are an old fashioned mange tout variety with purple flowers and a yellow pod.

But my poor Corn on the Cob…

They’ve been Badgered…

I tried to do the three sisters trick, growing corn on the cob, courgettes and beans together so that the beans grow up the corn and the courgettes shade the soil from too much heat…

And along comes Maggot. The corn hadn’t even formed adequate ears, so she just trashed the place for no good reason.

That’s all I have to say on the matter. Badgers are a law unto themselves….

About Anna

I am a ceramic sculptor living on the South coast near London, England. My work is influenced by my experience of the earth as a living being and seeing how we are all connected with eachother and with the things that surround us. I create ceramic torsos using molochite clay which I often smokefire in galvanised dustbins. I also make House Gods to protect and amuse, and Fat Birds - little smokefired sculptures that tell the story about what it is like to be a fat bird at peace with its surroundings.
