Good day to you all,
I apologies for the lengthy delay in posts. This is due to a much needed vacation in the United States. I took my family to visit Boston and Conneticut where we had a great time hooking up with friends and family.
After getting back to work and ploughing through my e mails i was set a task of creating an edible young vegetable patch for a VIP function which was taking place. "This sounds like fun" i remember telling myself and it was indeed fun!
I decided to create a patch of earth inspired by the ground which surrounds us at the hotel. Walking through the early Autumn woods i felt a crunch underfoot from the dead leaves. I noticed fallen branches peppered with moss, wild mushrooms growing around the trees and throughout the woodland. Auburn, burgandy and yellow leaves scattered around. Dead branches, fern leaves and small logs all took my attention as i tried to take in as much as possible and make an edible patch of earth. Below is one picture i took of the ground plus the photos i took of the room that the guests had dinner in, and also the edible remake of the Dogmersfield grounds.........
My apologies for poor picture quality in places...
