Earth up

What most people need in the garden as they get older is an 18-year-old boy, well I have come to that conclusion anyway this week. Zac was with me again yesterday and in the morning finished the weeding. After a large plate of pasta he asked if he could be given something more  physical. I almost cried with joy, once I got over the shock for someone wanting harder work I showed him how to earth up potatoes and let him get on with it. Zac did a great job of it and my back feels so much better for seeing the job finished. A very big Thank You Zac.

  1. As of this moment I have a 20 year old and an 18 year old in full spate in my garden. I couldn’t agree with you more! A good friend used to say that gardening requires the 3 M’s: Man, Money,Manure.
