My small 'potager'.
"... a traditional kitchen garden (jardin potager) is a space separate from the rest of the residential garden . 'Potager' is a French term for an ornamental vegetable or kitchen garden. Often flowers and herbs are also planted to enhance the garden's beauty; the goal being to make the function of providing food aesthetically pleasing."

So on the very first spring weekend... we began!
|Raised flower and vegetable beds to enhance our otherwise gravel-dominated jardin space.|
|Contemplation of the spring plantings.|
Planned for this summer... artichokes, tomatoes, cucumber, beans ...
yellow squash, strawberries, salad, lots of flowers, and maybe by this fall, a few 'American-style' pumpkins!
By May 1st we have a few healthy seedlings already!
... and spending time in the Spring sunshine is positively BLISSFUL!
