Excerpt from A Gardener's Year
Still, such as it is, I cannot begin better than by describing it. Some of it is ancient, over a hundred years old, perhaps much more, and it stands high. The soil is a stiff loam upon blue clay. Once when I dug out the bed of the Peach house, I had to remove a quantity of this primeval blue clay, and was surprised at its tenacity and closeness. Pickaxes were needed to get it out, and a tiny square would break up into enough to fill a cart. Yet even in this hard, unpromising material there must be virtue. I know it thus.
