Project V , Rebel gardening high in the Tuscan hills

I have been lucky enough to have the use of this site a few minutes drive up the road. Here i will be growing more food and picking fruit from the 30 or so fruit trees in exchange for tree pruning and general upkeep. Seems like a pretty good deal to me

First bed started. A 2 ft dug pit filled with rotten wood , branches and hay. This was then covered with sod and horse manure followed by a thin covering of hay

water collection barrels found on site

Pruned plum tree. There are 8 of these guys already stripped of fruit by me and good friend 'Chelsea Dave' an ex semi pro footballer and fruit picking legend
 Next doors water collection  shed....Nice
