At last... the plans are in place, the letters have gone out and the web site is up and running!! Coginio Cartref is the Welsh medium cookery equivalent to The Pumpkin Patch - my new venture!
These cookery workshops will be for secondary school children, and will be held at Allt y Gog Farm each Monday night between 6pm and 8pm.
I'm really looking forward to the first class which will be held Monday 30th November. We'll then have three weeks to get Christmas sorted!! I hope to make the Christmas cake and mince pies, lovely cranberry jelly and a super stuffing for the turkey... I'll let you know how we get on!
If you're interested.. try www.coginiocartref.co.uk for more information,
or give me a call on 01267 290312

Over the past few weeks at The Pumpkin Patch we've been clearing the raised beds for the winter.... but there's a lot left. The leeks will soon be used for Welsh cawl (leek soup), the Swiss chard is still growing and I've already had some Brussels Sprouts - though the rest of the family would rather leave them in the ground, they're not big fans!
Sunday, I went (because I thought I should!) to clear the last of the cosmos and wild flower garden... I started but I couldn't bring myself to tear down the big, blousy display of chaotic colour just because it was November. So the chaos of flowers remain and will do until the first frost or the heavy rain gets the better of them!
