Potager du Peintre 2

potager du peintre

The marvelous organic gardneress, Debbie, has been with me today. We have been uncovering the soil for our potager. Having been under cover, under fifteen carloads of horse manure, for eight months, it was a big moment. Debbie rolled the soil into a ball. It worked. Then into a sausage. It crumbled. 'Perfect' she said. 'This is the best soil I have seen in Provence!' And there are worms! Hundreds of happy spring worms working away!!!! Unfortunately there is still couch grass which we have spent the afternoon removing.

I can't wait to see the harvest, especially those that are captured on canvas!

There will be aubergines, yes?
