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.

Its snowing!

A little earlier than last year, we had or first snow last night here in Central Brittany. For a place that normally doesn't have snow every winter, the past three years are not really a good sign to say there is global warming.
But at least the chickens have their new covered area to shelter under this year.


  1. The shelter built just in time. The chickens will be thankful for what you did for them. Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you Mika, and yes the chickens are really happy now with their new shelter, although the first few days they just stood out in the rain and did not use it!
