Our vegetables are loving the weather we’re having this spring. In the first bed there are chives, sage, lettuce, tomatoes, broccoli and carrots (under the netting at the front).
The next bed, on the left has got brussels, spinach and rhubarb, and the third bed is planted entirely with potatoes.
And at the end are loads of strawberries. We’re hoping the netting will mean we actually get to eat some of them ourselves this year!
I want your house! It’s exactly the kind of home I would love. The kind that just says ‘England!’
I’m with Bells. Fabulous! And your vege patch is even “England”!
I love your cottage, your garden *swoon*, and your teapot collection. Not to mention the vintage sampler blanket you’re thinking about.
It all makes me think a postdoc in England isn’t out of the question – as long as you look at the beautiful green gardens instead of (what they tell me is) cast iron grey sky… (And they tea… yes. Tea)
lol I was going to say that too. So ‘english’ – houses arent like that here.
good luck on the strawberries. the voles eat all of my blueberries–even the netting doesn’t help, since they come from under the ground. so sad.
Um. Are you kidding me?! That is your house and garden? Amazing! I hope all of the animals don’t eat your veggies.
What a lovely stone cottage – how old is it? You’ll think this is funny, but in my neck of the woods an old building is 100 years old and rare. Our house is probably one of the oldest in this community at 83 years old. Your garden looks so pretty.
Love your house and garden!
I am so jealous! We have too much tree cover and not enough light to grow vegetables. Looks like you’ll be enjoying fresh veggies in a few months…
I love the house, just what I imagine an English cottage to be. Are the rooms all small and cozy like what we see on BBC America? Good luck with the strawberries, ours are being eaten by the evil squirrels, we tried the net one year and they ate through it. Now we just admire the strawberries.
