NOTRE POTAGER

We visited many gardens at Cotswolds, England in 2010 and 2012.  We have been interested in kitchen gardens or potager since we saw them which were beautifully designed and well managed.

We started to make a kitchen garden in autumn of 2012.  The land is isosceles right triangle with 10 meter sides.
According to my design we planted apple trees and boxwood.  Then I made triangular, rectangular and pentagonal raised beds and painted them blue-gray.

 The narrow paths were paved with granite slates, and I made two pentagonal cold frames.


The photos below were shot this year.

I made a photobook of our kitchen garden last year, and you can watch it online.
