We live in a very rural part of England - the Pewsey Vale is dotted with small villages with the Kennet and Avon canal running through it - alongside the railway to the West Country. Our village is small with two working farms one of them growing thatching straw - there is an excellent pub/restaurant. We live in Marden Manor a fairly large house surrounded by open parkland and with lawns and flower beds - there is a grass tennis court. we have a kitchen garden and grow all ourown vegetables and some fruit. There are two greenhouses and 3 herbacious borders. June is a busy time when the fruit needs picking and freezing. we do have help in the garden but we could do with more. there is always something to do whether it is painting or gardening or tidying something up. We are mow coming to the busy time in the kitchen garden as the fruit ripens and needs picking and freezing - about a week from now. there are sheep in our orchard and we keep hens - we also have two dogs. We have three children and 4 grandchildren who don't live far away.
