After a bad night on Thursday with toothache, I have to say that I accomplished very little, but Nigel has almost finished digging over the vegetable garden for me. For once in my life, I am looking forward to the earliest dentist appointment I could make - next Wednesday.
We had some neighbours around last evening for aperitifs, which event gave Nigel a good chance to practice his French. I do understand a lot more now than I used to, but my accent is so bad that no one understands me, even if I do try to speak French! Learning a new language when one gets older is not easy! No matter, our neighbours in the hamlet are very flexible and forgiving and our efforts to speak French are genuinely appreciated. A good time appeared to be had by all and everyone was here until well after the normal "apero" closure time.
I must get some vegetable seedlings planted ASAP or the produce will be late in arriving!!
The rhubarb is sprouting well
as is the sorrel, great with scrambled eggs or liquidised as soup. Click HERE for recipe.
We are quite worried about the asparagus; the rabbits are flourishing well here in the area, and it appears that they are digging to get at the roots. I am not a happy bunny! Investigations are actively under way into the availability and the price of wire netting!
