From Little Acorns "Oaks grow"


Well maybe not oaks, just a modest veg plot. I have finally cleared the ground next to the carpark and squeezed in four raised beds to try my hand at eating what I grow. I have for 3 years watched my neighbours here in France reaping the rewards of their hardwork, and secretly felt jealous as they walk past my gate with arms full of produce from their allotments. Often they would leave us a parcel of goodies like strawberries, cherries and courgettes. But now its my turn. It's early days but hopefully I should get something in return for the backache I have at the moment. So watch this space, appearing in a garden in Burgundy soon will be cabbage, broccolli, french beans and carrots to name but a few! Well fingers crossed. (That's GREEN fingers of course)

Hi Jules
Lovely to heat from you Hope your back isn't aching too much from all the digging! There is nothing nicer than picking it fresh from the garden so here's hoping it all grows well.

To avoid backache, next time use the digger or get Paul to do it, lol.

Well done, you will soon reap the rewards of your hard work.

Keep 23rd August free in your diary.
