Borage & Bergamot

Particularly loving these flowering herbs in the hilbarn garden: borage & bergamot, sound as old fashioned as they look.

Clever Re-Use #5

 We've often admired hilbarn customer Jennifer's garden and particularly her canny ways of attracting birdlife. This morning we caught her at home (waiting for a builder to arrive), and she gladly let us photograph her teacup seed holders and kettle nest. Like a mad hatter's tea party for the birds! Lovely. Oh, and here's Jennifer with her best friend Graham. Inspiration while we deliver on a Monday morning...

hilbarn's Cocktail Jams

For the past few months our boxes have featured Kate Smith's luscious Cocktail Jams made exclusively for hilbarn from seasonal produce sourced from our growers, our neighbours, and our gardens. We have to confess our jam tasting sessions (this one photographed yesterday, above) have never been a chore... We've been asked if Kate's jams are more widely available and we're pleased to say they will be coming to a market near you soon. Kate's been busy, left, filling her jewel-like pots with every delicious colour under the sun. Yesterday we dropped off a basket of greengages from Barn's garden to help complete the rainbow.

UPDATED (February 18, 2013): You can now find Kate and her Jams (Just Add Moonshine) at Evandale Market on Sundays.
