Welcome to my blog

I was born in Guernsey (but now live in Brittany) and our main industry was growing tomatoes although that industry has now virtually disappeared. Growing tomatoes to a Guernseyman is like wine to a Frenchman, it's in our blood! I do not profess to be an expert, but I have picked up a few tips and techniques which work for me.

Bramble's new look

As some followers of my blog might have noticed, Bramble our loyal 12 year old English Springer Spaniel always manages to get herself in the pictures or videos on my blog. She will happily follow me around all day no matter what I am doing, always waiting for me to throw something for her to fetch. The trouble is that she loves rolling in the horses straw bedding and gets covered in dirt when digging out mole holes. So, today we decided that she needed a treat at the beauty parlor to help her stay a little cleaner. As you can see in my previous post, she did need a good trim up, so here she is looking 5 years younger with her new look.




Sooty and her new kittens were impressed


So were the three French hens!
