Now well into Autumn the patch is definitely open for business. We have been fortunate to have a constant flow of fruit and vegetables the past month and Zoé has been giving the patch a daily going over. She is only eighteen months old but already knows her way around the garden and where to find exactly what she’s looking for, it’s beautiful. Watching her eating and most of all enjoying the whole experience makes it all worth the while.
For those that are interested at the end of the post I’ll list all of the fruit and vegetables we currently have growing in the garden to date.
