Fifty an Hour in the Potager

In the country, we are allowed 90 an hour but I didn’t have the horsepower.

By a happy conjunction of circumstances, today was a “plant roots” day on the lunar calendar and market day in a nearby town.  A perfect line-up for putting in leeks.  I bought a bunch of young plants.  They come by the hundred.  We didn’t lollygaggle very long at the market and I got straight to work out in the garden.  About two hours later I had finished and got them watered in before it started to rain.  🙂

Does this look like a highway to pot au feu?

Yesterday we visited some private gardens their owners opened to the public for the day.  We saw a lot of beauty, evidence of hard work, more than can be done by one person alone.  There were quite a few visitors appreciating it.  I enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere with an undercurrent of joy.  It gave me an inkling of what the world could be like if we were to make the necessary changes within, becoming Good.

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
