Everything in the garden’s rosy

6 May

It’s that time of year when everything suddenly bursts into life. The trees turn green very quickly and plants (and weeds) suddenly sprout up from the ground. Going for my daily walk with the dog, I see brown fields turning green one day, and then they are full of growing crops the next. Yesterday I noticed a lot of fields where the crops had been harvested already. Gone in a trice. I am not yet used to the cycle of growing here in the south west of France. Everything seems to happen a lot sooner than I remember it in the UK!

Above are some photographs of the garden here at The Old Tannery. We have growing:

Potatoes, Tomatoes, Peas, Broad Beans, Lettuces, Carrots, Radishes, Leeks, Sprouts, Peppers, Aubergines, Melons, Courgettes, Globe Artichokes, Jerusalem Artichokes, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, Thyme, Mint, Chives, Sunflowers, Peaches, Pears, Apples, Cherries, Gooseberries, Raspberries, Blueberries, Apricots, Hazelnuts, Walnuts, Olives.

And not forgetting the chickens and the goldfish!

We also thought you might appreciate some photographs of our area:

That’s all for now. I am flying off to the UK for a week, to improve my English!
