I love that Bagni di Lucca residents grow things in tiny patches of land. Little plots grow vegetables and fruit and olive trees. Grape vines form fences. I often see thriving gardens on my walks around the villages.
I was happy to meet Rino Pacini who proudly showed me his growing vegetables.
His front yard is also lovingly tended.
Growng basil in a pot is about all I can manage on my tiny balcony at Ponte a Serraglio.
