There are so many memories for me in this chapter as, when I was young, I passed a lot of time in the orchard eating fruit – or stealing it from the farm next door and being chased by the farmer when he caught me eating cherries from his tree! So much fun!
The garden too has a special place in my mind as we often helped Mum with the heavy task of turning the ground and planting – then waiting – before finally picking the vegetables or herbs when they were ready. All of us sitting around the table and preparing what was going to be lunch or dinner. It was a special time and I often think of those precious moments.
