We have been back in France for just over four days and everything in the garden is starting to look shipshape again. Philippe, our neighbour, had kindly rotovated the potager for us beforehand so Paul was able to dig in the compost ready for planting. This morning we went to the local nursery and bought a few plants - tomato, aubergine, Piment des Landes (the long thin chilli peppers recommended by Cro), bell peppers, salad and basil. The potager will be reduced this year as we will probably be travelling back to the UK at some point so no colourful pots of geraniums either!
