This week for #HDYGG I am taking a week off although I am not sunning myself on a Greek island like one Annie some of us know. In fact I am being super busy in the garden trying to keep on top of everything that needs doing at this time of year. And this week I have added something new to my list ... "Help Ben, our younger son set up his own patch of garden". So without further ado, it is over to Ben who is giving us the blog post this week.
Hi, I'm Ben and I have just started my own garden at Eco-Gites of Lenault and I am really excited to get it going. So far I have already planted cabbages, purple sprouting broccoli, strawberries and lettuces. I have put grass round them to try and stop some of the weeds and also reduce the need for watering (or so Mum says!).
My love of gardening started quite young - here I am with my brother Tom in our garden in England before we came to France ... however I have to say I have no idea what we are doing or whether we were supposed to be doing it or not! We were probably trying to eat it!
Fast forward 11 years and here I am with my very own garden!
I'd love to have some ideas from you as to what I should plant in the rest of my garden. I would prefer fruit of veg although edible flowers would be OK. What do you think I should be growing?
For further great gardening posts head on over to the How Does Your Garden Grow linky which this week is being hosted by Gemma Garner.
