    'With a view' vegetable garden

    I have planted a vegetable garden in this slightly sloping west facing meadow for the second year (2009). I’ve sown in rows and rather late (at the beginning of June). I’m trying to grow tomatoes, onions, salads, chards, peas, French b...

    Around the house there are a stone sidewalk and a wood deck and I can’t plant anything near the walls. So I’m growing some roses and other flowers in pots.

    'Sunny from dawn to dusk' vegetable garden

    I have made a new vegetable garden in a very sunny (even though rather windy) location, just in front of the house. I hope that peppers and tomatoes can speed up their growth, since the summers are so short in these mountains… ‘From da...

    Wildlife garden

    Few people live in the small rural hamlet where we moved in summer 2006 (11 inhabitants, my husband and me included) and, I admit it, I miss sometimes the urban environment, so rich in ideas and different people and experiences. Few human beings...

    Wooden deck stripe garden

    Behind the house, beyond the wooden deck, there is a stripe of lawn. It isn’t still a garden: this area is still bare; we have only sown some grass, early mixed with weeds. Now (October 2009) I’m planning to plant some bulbs. I would l...

    Seed starting garden

    Inspired by other folians’ seed starting gardens – and helped by GC – I’ve realized mine, using a shoplight with two fluorescent bulbs, hanging under a wooden shelf and wired to a timer. I’ve bought a heathing mat too...

    On a wall of my house there is inscribed a date: 1936. It’s the year when the stables were enlarged. In that time the wife of the landlord had here a vegetable garden, set in a slope that, passing the years, has become very shady, because th...

    Foxgloves garden

    Between a small wood and a high hedge of locust trees we found a stripe of land full of weeds, nettles, brambles and vines. It was a shady hideaway but almost impenetrable. We decided to clear up part of this dense vegetation with the help of some...
