Melons… We grow them all. But I’ll let you into a secret, when the time comes to pick the melons, tomatoes etc, the huerta will not look like this! It will be a tangled maze of green leaves, the veggies will be hiding beneath the vegetation, some leaves will be showing signs of drought, curling at the edges or dusted with mildew. Not to mention the biting ants.
The veggies… they will taste amazing. But a tidy English allotment it is not! 5 to remember
arreglado/a – neat
el crecimiento – the growth
el valor – the goodness [of food]
una secreta – a secret
el mildeu – mildew
