New toys

Yesterday, along with finding an ace new spot for chanterelles.......which are being used in a scrummy bunny casserole this evening with the windfall apples from out the back, cider and calvados, we also went shopping and bought some new toys. Today, we have been putting them to good use. To the rear of the house, we have mowed in front of Benazet's house and have lopped the apple tree immediately behind the house and also the fir tree on the terrasse which has let more light reach the house. After my initial scything below the washing lane this morning, we ran the funky new lawn mower through and will shortly be looking to borrow a rotavator in order to prepare a section of that land for our new 'potager'! Next year, we should be in a position to grow more veggies, which I am really looking forward to.
