After the driest winter on record we are now having one of the wettest springs. Although some of the guests might think otherwise it does have some good points. The meadows are lusher than ever, summer water restrictions seem highly improbable and the vegetable garden is producing some bumper crops. Mange tout is still in abundance along with broad beans, artichokes, and some lovely new potatoes which we have been harvesting for the last 3 weeks.
While I (Nigel) work hard on the land Joe awakes from a much deserved siesta.
