Hope it stays mild enough for all these buds to open.
Ripening nicely but no more appetising!
'Eldroth Barn was the most cosy, peaceful, romantic and utterly delightful stay we have had using airbnb. Jill has created a very special space, it needs to be experienced to be appreciated - even the lovely photos on here didn't do it justice! Lovely attention to detail from the underfloor heating to the log burner to fluffy towels to freshly ground coffee to gorgeous comfy furnishings. And all of this in the most majestic setting of the Dales. Great great base for walking - you can literally step out from the Barn and explore to your hearts content. We cannot recommend highly enough!!' Cat, Oct 2018 Book the Barn via Airbnb https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/23317789
I understand you pick them now, let them ripen until they start to rot then eat the flesh. It's meant to be delicious but I remain to be convinced ....
Beautiful autumnal shades in the garden now!
Dales Discoveries have complied a list of the best places to eat! Some close to us have been included: The Game Cock in the beautiful village of Austwick is a firm favourite with locals, and has an extensive menu with a French flavour and ample portions. Enjoy an excellent meal at the Traddock, in Austwick, a local beer or two, and stay overnight in one of their cosy rooms. You're requested to get in touch with them to add recommendations of your own too!

Lots of lovely eating apples to pick and some Granny Smiths for delicious pies! Still getting a good crop of raspberries too - made some yummy jam and vinegars from the soft fruits.
