Well…it’s a roadside stall really. Just a little wonky table and some shelves painted the colour of a blackbird’s egg. But when the Sweet Peas and scented Sweet Williams and old fashioned Pinks are picked and the baby carrots are bunched and tied and the Rhubarb is piled high, my little stand becomes a natural, Kitchen Garden produce emporium. Passers by, holiday makers and locals alike all visit and buy and tell me how they love that what they buy is real, natural, that the flowers are from a cottage garden, or potager, where the flowers, vegetables and plants grow alongside each other as true companions.
Proud to be able to say that what I sell is ‘GROWN NOT FLOWN’ my flowers and vegetables and plants have travelled only a few yards from their growing place to my gate. And although, like any other home grown goods, they have been watered and tended from seedlings to picking my plants have also been fed with bucket loads of love. And I think that makes a big difference.
