Summer Garden Tour – Our 2nd Year of Growing Food

We’ve done a lot of work in the garden this year – from Hügelkultur raised beds to dig vs. no-dig potatoes and a huge expansion to add space for growing corn, sweet potatoes, asparagus and a whole host of squash and pumpkin.

Join us on a bright and sunny morning in the interior of central Portugal (growing zone 10a) for a look at what’s growing well, what’s growing less well and what’s taking over the garden!

And thank you to one of our lovely club members, Ana, for providing the following translation of the conversation with our neighbour:

Me: Good morning, how are you?

Neighbour: We’re getting there, what about you?

Me: would you like more courgette’s?

Neighbour: Enough, there are only Two of us

Me: More? Would you like more?

Neighbour: No thank you, we’re only two and we don’t eat that much, but thank you anyway… Neighbour: [talking about the potato harvest] They are very small, last year they were big, this year they are tiny. But my friend, it’s all there is round here, and that’s the best we can get. That’s it. Thank You!

I guess they’re not a fan of courgettes! 🤦‍♂️
