Where did the last two months go!!!!!
After the early summer spell during April/May, June and July heralded some much need rain. The garden seems confused as does everything in the polytunnel, but we are still getting good crops from the tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers, and also onions, radish and beetroot. The winter crops are also doing well. Geoff's chillies are prolific and his Indian meals are a real favourite. The rhubarb has gone berserk and rhubarb crumble, pie or flan regularly gets served for dessert for the guests. And with my newly aquired kitchen blow torch Crème Brulée is another big favourite.
With a constant flow of even more delightful people through the B&B we have decided to renovate the rest of the property and include within that another B&B apartment to the same standard as the already well received one. The added attraction for this apartment will be the stunning views down the meadow land at that end of the building. The construction work is already well under way and we plan to be ready for Christmas bookings.
Once the building work is completed and he leaves me to do the decorating and finishing, Geoff plans to grow more of his special breed dahlias and create a small learning and educational centre which will be open to the public, to view and buy cut flowers or tubers and plants for the next year. This will complement our neighbours' Lavender Farm allowing guests and visitors a relaxing and informative time in naturally, beautiful surroundings.
We couldn't have done all this so far without the help and enthusiasm from our 'Workawayers' (volunteer manual workers who give their time in return for full board and lodging with us and who live in as family). It'a win/win situation as most of the Workawayers are travelling the world stopping off at various places to enjoy each location and then move on. We get to meet people from all over the world, enjoy their company/cultures, and benefit from their help.
