Christmas on St Helena is coffee-picking time! 2021 was a pretty wet year, but that means it was a good year for some of our young coffee bushes. Today we picked several buckets of ripe coffee berries, which we’ll soak overnight tonight and de-skin (“pulp”) tomorrow.
Duck eggs and hens eggs
We’ve hens and ducks – hens eggs are the brown ones on the left, and the duck eggs are the larger pale ones on the right. Eggs from our six Muscovy ducks are delicious – a little bit richer than hens eggs.
The plum trees are blossoming
We’ve a few old plum trees in the front garden, and it’s spring here on St Helena around October time – which means misty rain and cool weather. And it’s time for the plum trees to flower!
