Haybarton New Year

[Posted on January 27th, 2014]

Haybarton New Year

Christmas already seems a long time away and we have been busy in the Hay Barton kitchen making this years supply of marmalade.  I use a Delia Smith recipe which is pretty full proof and have now squeezed and sliced about about 30 lbs of Seville oranges.

Outside there are signs of Spring too, with crocus, snowdrops and daffodils all flowering in the garden.   Heligan Gardens, my favourite and only a ten minute drive, are open daily and they are hard at work preparing for the year ahead.

Tregoose, close by, with its amazing collection of snowdrops will be opening for days in February when it is drier underfoot and At other times garden visits are by arrangements with the owners.  Our two closest gardens, Trewithen and Poppy Cottage open on March 1st.
