Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #97- Pastimes

This week the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is organized by a guest-host: Sue of Mac’s Girl, and Sue choose the theme: “Pastimes“.

In addition to photography, my favourite pastime is gardening and in this lockdown I took the opportunity to plant some horticultural plants such as: onions, lettuce, tomatoes, beans, chilli, assorted cabbages, cucumbers, peppers and some strawberries. Strawberries are a bit of a job, we have to put a layer underneath so that the strawberries do not pick up soil.
