But First, Coffee

I’ve mentioned here before that Mr T and I are keen on a decent cup of coffee, so it might come as a surprise to know we only just discovered Pact Coffee. I’ve seen the ads and plenty of friends had posted discount codes on social media, but I had never been tempted to try it for myself. Recently I shared a great cup of coffee at a friend’s and was surprised when she told me they have been subscribers to Pact for a couple of years. Not long after I saw a link online and went off to do some research. Unlike our favourite brand, Pact isn’t Fairtrade, but they do work directly with coffee farmers and I was impressed with how much information they give about where the coffee is grown, how it’s harvested and processed. The choice of blends was impressive and the flexibility to choose how often our coffee is delivered was definitely appealing (there is even a post now button if you really need a coffee fix in a hurry).  I chose the Planalto blend, ground for my cafetiere. My order arrived just a couple days later. Freshly roasted, securely packed and ready to brew.

It’s a great tasting coffee, the customer service was friendly and my order arrived promptly. I’ve set up a repeat order, but Mr T and I are going to spend some time perusing the different blends, so if you’re already a Pact Coffee fan, do let us know your favourite. If you would like to try Pact Coffee for yourself, you can get a whopping £5 off your first order by using my referral link*.  Or, you can type this code in when you visit the Pact Coffee website (TRACEY-698BF3). And, just so you know, this isn’t a sponsored post, I’m writing this because I really liked the coffee and I’m just a bit sorry Mr T and I are so late to the Pact Coffee party!

*Offer for new customers only, discount is applied to your first purchase of any regular priced coffee

  • The gooseberries are plump and tart - perfect for gin! This is my favourite summer gin. Add a few elderflowers if you like. Freeze the gooseberries first so they release their flavour.

The leaves make a fabulous "tea" to feed tomatoes (mix in a bucket of water with a handful of nettles), it doesn't smell as bad as comfrey feed and much cheaper / greener than the stuff you buy in garden centres!!

Can you read that  card? A valet to whiten your converse! Brought back memories of  whitening my Dunlop green flash in the 70's!!!
#chatsworth #converseallstars #conversetrainers Strange sky tonight. Common hogweed. Even the weeds look beautiful in the sunshine today. The flowers and  stems of this one are destined for the dye pot. There are lots of varieties of hogweed, if in doubt don't touch - the sap is highly irritant, even poisonous in some. 
#hogweed #foraging #ecodye #permaculture  #naturaldye #slowliving #bakingandmaking Everyone loves elderflowers - even the cockchafers (maybugs). Last night we sat in the garden drinking the first batch of elderflower champagne, watching the bats & the moths and listening to a blackbird serenading us. The hedgerows are full of elderflowers & champagne is easy to make (easier than cordial), if you have white wine vinegar, lemons & sugar. Click on the link in my bio and type "elderflower champagne" in the search bar.
