How Does Your Garden Grow

I have often thought when I have set up the table for our games set in Spain that there was something missing, I recently visited Pat Smith's Blog, and there was the answer, gardens/cultivation around the buildings.
Here is the first one, more to follow when time permits. No game this week, due to the Bank Holiday and Dave and myself both having family commitments to attend to later in the week.

  1. I have thought the same but not got around to doing anything about it yet. Mind you I normally stay clear of gardening.

    1. When my wife came home and I said I had been gardening, I don't think this sprang to mind. I can recommend this sort George, very relaxing I found.

  2. If it's any help, my own observations from Southern Spain, are that everyday rural Spaniards grow their own lettuce, onions, tomatoes, carrots and potatoes etc when they can, often keeping chickens too if they have space.

    Citrus fruits, olives and wild garlic can just be picked anywhere at no cost.

    Urbanites typically have no space for gardens, unless they have a terraza near roof level and even then they prefer to use them for decorative/shade giving plants.

  5. Looking lovely Phil! I have to agree. It’s details like that which really lift a table from nice to outstanding.
