farm style keep fit

with stretches …

… stretch and balance …

… walking with 5kg weight in each hand.

Forget “the burn” of exercise classes – we get real pain with scratched hands from the brambles, nettle stings and all sorts of debris and insects falling down the inside of our clothing into uncomfortable places.

But at the end of the blackberry picking session we have a satisfyingly good haul of fruit. Most of the blackberries will be infused in gin but I managed to sneak out some yesterday that I mixed with chopped apples and heated enough to soften the apples and bring out the juices of the blackberries. One of life’s simple pleasures.

    I’ve been trying to get out to pick the last of the blackberries from my ‘secret place’ – I have that hedge all to myself – but it won’t stop raining for long enough.

    Is that the CEO of Slamsey’s Drinks I see here?
