Everything is calm now on the home front so it is back to the farm . I went there today with the plan that I’ll bring home some potatoes as the weather is nice and dry.
The fuss certainly paid off when planting them – sharp sand in the bottom of the little trench, some slug pellets and later during the growing season some potato fertiliser.
But not only did I bring home some tasty spuds, I got a box of raspberries, blackberries and tomatoes.
Last but not least – my fig tree in the back garden started giving me fantastic ripe figs. It has been producing loads for quite a number of years but I think this year will be the best.
