Safely Gathered In.
Our potato crop was excellent this year. I grew a variety called 'Charlotte', and they were literally forcing themselves out of the ground as they were both prolific and huge! I think I have a stock of about 50 Kilos.
Onions always do well. I think these were called 'Baron'. Again I have about 50 Kilos in storage.
Both the potatoes and the onions need to be checked every so often. A bad one amongst the good can soon play havoc.
STORIES NOW SILENCED ..........

to wish everyone a Happy New Year would have caused so much pain and be so

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
