From the orchard to our table


Because we dream of the possibility of starting an orchard for Casa Josephine, we have been learning from the experts. José -neighbour and friend- has patiently taught us how things are done: what grows when, where to plant what, when to pick what...

And here's what we learnt above anything else: growing a vegetable garden is easy when the soil is so fertile....in fact, fertile to a crazy extent!


From June to September, this is the harvest in Sorzano:
Plums, cherries, kumquats, strawberries, beans, peaches, cabagge, zucchini, cucumbers, onions, pears, lettuce, apples, tomatoes, peppers...


And now that summer draws to its end...get your baskets ready for figs and grapes!
