james is my childhood friend who turned up at my first birthday party and stole my balloon. we lost contact for a while till we both applied to go to a mission trip in croatia nearly 20 years later and have been chilled beans since. when i was korea last year, i paid a visit to james who was teaching english there. he's now officially back but has wanted a quick escape from the buzz of london, so what better place to bring him than to the wonderful land of surrey where garsons farm lives. i was surprised by how many fruit and veg were still available late september, including my fave sweetcorn. also, a quick tip, head to the orchard - the apples are reaaaaaal tasty.
