93. How Does Your Garden Grow?
Bonjour mon petite chou fleurs! Je suis back from Francais et ready to share! Ok, ok, enough of my stupidity... This week's photos were taken at the weekend, on a tour of Rosie (offa Eco Gite Lenault). Regular joiner-inners will know Rosie well, her poly-tunnel and endless levels of gardening energy and I was VERY excited to be finally meeting her and poking my nose around her garden (not a euphemism, obvs).
Before we went up to see the poly-tunnel Rosie let the children help feed the animals and stroke a chicken or two...
*Cute alert, Cute alert, Incoming Piglets*
And here's their daddy, Boris Johnson. This photo doesn't do justice to his size, Rosie thinks he must weigh about 130kgs. What a character!
Next stop, feeding the three lady pigs, two of which I believe are Coco Channel, Angela Rampling, the name of the third escapes me but I'm Rosie will remind me *smiles sweetly at Rosie*
And then up to the poly-tunnel! Rosie explained about her current mice woes, the blighters are eating everything she plants in there at the moment. Not for long though as she has a rather ingenious plan to scupper them in the form of a fridge - I'll leave you to read how she's combatting the mice here, super-sneaky it is!
Turns out our Rosie is a seed squirreller and I'm not talking about a packet or two, oh no...
Talking of seeds - keep an eye out for the Show me the Colour Seed Swap email, letting you know who you'll be posting seeds to (and receiving seeds from!) If you haven't signed up yet, there's a couple of days left to do so:
It was lovely to see everything, especially the rhubarb (my fave!) poking up through the ground. Rosie garden is a lot bigger than I imagined, as is the poly-tunnel and it was SO nice to meet her in 'real life'! I wonder which of your garden I'll be infiltrating next? *cackles manically*
During this morning stroll we witnessed sunshine, rain and snow - quite the mixed bag of weather - luckily this was waiting for me back in the gite...
