We’ve had several more days of rain so the garden is well watered, but we could do with some sunshine now to encourage the plants to grow.
A nice surprise
And olives ….
well, flower buds at least – our little Lucque tree is covered in buds.
We’ve been preparing the beds for the pepper plants and deciding how we’re going to fit them all in. We have about 40 plants altogether, not counting chilli peppers, as this year we’ve managed to get almost all of them to grow well. We’ll probably plant them out tomorrow and I’ll take some photos then.
Replacing the beans the birds had eaten
Roses and a butterfly on the wild thyme
There’s borage growing as a weed among the roses, but I think it looks good there.
The wild asparagus is almost over now but yesterday we bought some cultivated asparagus from a stall in a fair in the village. It hadn’t come far, just 5 km from a nearby village, and it was delicious. We had some of it with a vinaigrette dressing and crusty Aveyronnais bread, and also made an asparagus and goats’ cheese tart.
