It's been just over a month since we got back to France, and a month since I planted a few Courgette and Broccoli plants at Haddock's.
The garden is full of fruit, some of which we will certainly harvest, or are already; but most probably not. We'll definitely be eating Peaches, Figs, and Plums, but most of the Apples and Pears will probably mature after we return to the UK. I have already told the gardener to help himself.
The first vegetables to be harvested are a couple of Courgettes. These plants will now continue to bear fruit for the rest of our stay.
Next year I was thinking about growing Tomatoes again, but I believe they take over 90 days to produce edible fruits, so it's out of the question.
Our Peaches are now ripe. We need to eat them quickly as there are so many! We also have a surfeit of small (Bird?) Plums. They are delicious, but have big pips. And our Greengages have to be seen to be believed. One minute there's nothing, the next we're overwhelmed.
