The garden of Aurillac is still hardly taken care of. However, there is progress in the garden of Saint Simon.
I took advantage of a warm and sunny day to go through an Education for Sustainable Development training session outdoors, in “Le jardin d’Aurillac”.
In contrast with « le jardin de Saint Simon », « le jardin d’Aurillac » is in poor condition, for lack of proper care. Will it stay like that ?
I dug the plant bed near the well today with the old garden spade. We used to eat lots of strawberries from that bed, surely we will get some more.
This is the depth of the well in “le jardin d’Aurillac”. A useful supply of fresh water for young fruit trees and, if the water proves to be clean, for vegetables and soft fruit.
Getting rid of the ivy on the big wall. Long job if done alone. Yet, little by little…
Inertia can put the patience of prospective gardeners to the test. It sometimes takes time for things to happen, for instance until the owners of unmaintained gardens welcome change.
With so many pollinators around the old blossoming tree and a gorgeous weather, we are on our way to harvest a few kilos of deliciously sweet greengages this summer.
Example of a garden with great potential unexploited for many years.
