"Oh ye have got a garden!"
That's a greeting I often get when somebody notices yours truly working on my beloved vegetable garden. In west Cork a 'garden' means somewhere you grow vegetables. In England a garden means somewhere that you hang out your washing, grow pretty flowers and VEGETABLES, drink beer on the patio or even play good old football or cricket on.
No artificial chemicals are used in my vegetable cultivation. I do however use lots of swear words and I tend to drink copious amounts of alcohol after a few hours tending my little piece of Eden.
The picture at top is me holding two leeks. The picture underneath me is me, myself and I (Joan Armatrading song) this morning toiling and looking jolly pleased with all my efforts.
Do you have an allotment or a smallholding? Do you write books? Go on leave a comment or ten and tell us all about them!
