Up the Garden Path is Jean’s blog about her, and her husband Max’s, efforts to cut their food bill by growing their own produce.
The blog starts with bold ambition In the beginning and continues through successes and failures (but I rather think far more of the former than the latter!) to This year’s pigs – Berkshire Blacks again!
The last post details storing garlic and potatoes and… sending 15 years old sons into sex shops.
I’ve checked thoroughly and there aren’t any posts about mushrooms, Citroen 2CVs or lingerie.
However, I did find plenty of posts about piggies (another of my passions) and a wonderful post containing a recipe for adding protein to Brocolli Cheese!
Let’s start with the Piggy Posts!
4). More Pigs
I do hope that This year’s pigs – Berkshire Blacks again! haven’t read those posts!
There are plenty of posts about bee’s (Jean and Max keep bees), of which Bees & Borage is one. By the way, you really do owe it to yourself to click on the gorgeous photos to see them full size.
But Up the Garden Path is more than just a list of guide as to what to plant and when, it is more of a record of a family life (a happy one, I feel) in the Loire with a Mother who cook caterpillars with her broccoli cheese and a Father who sends his 15 year old son into sex shops!
Strangely enough (and this might explain a few things), that sounds curiously like my own upbringing!
All the best
