Vegetable Plots.

Vegetable Plots. (Landscapes 5)

Simple and straightforward, vegetable plots behind some cottages in the village of St Bartelamy. There is nothing fancy about these little plots of land; they exist simply to provide food. They are tended every day by old men and women, there is not a weed in sight, and a well-trodden path leads up to the boules pitch. This is a life, not much talked about but well lived and hardly changing. To me this path running up to the backs of the cottages illustrated so well that timeless feeling that villages have, especially when you go round the back way, off the road and along the snickets.
