Hurrah, I've got 3 pea pods! Having never grown peas before I am scarily excited! Did a stroll of one's estate this morning and not only did I find the aforementioned peas but also baby cherry and plum tomatoes, chillies and peppers. The runner beans are shooting for the sky, spuds are flowering and guess who is eating the redcurrants? Yep, the chickens!! How can chickens have a craving for red summer berries? I mean, they get delicious rice and pasta, wheat and mais, left over cat food and the odd snail. Well that's French gourmet chickens for you.
