Title Gentile Account, page 097
Description The gardener had flooded her little grass plot: he meant to let the water lie on it twenty minutes. Then he had set out a new strawberry bed, of dry runners planted in ridges; and when he drew out the "gate" the water trickled down the tiny channels successively. If the plants had been set out on a level bed, and the whole flooded at once, he said in answer to my suggestion, that the "mineral "97 in coming to the surface would have caked hard round the young plants and killed them. While we were watching the gardener Evy went back to our rooms for a book I wanted. On his return he was embarrassed by a follower a Pi-ede lad a year or two older than himself, who stuck to him inseparable as a shadow, singing and chatting in a low musical voice that sounded as if he was speaking Italian. Evy hesitated about entering the garden, thus accompanied, but Mrs. Lucy laughed and told him that no one minded "Tsjim" as he called himself. She invited us to come and look at her grape arbour. One long trellis runs back some distance from the house, and she had several thousand vine-cuttings in a bed ready to set out. She means to have a "pleached [plaited or interlaced] alley" all round the lot. It is under her arbor she says that she sleeps at night in summer. I asked her if she was not afraid. "Not the least," she said gaily, "she was sure God would take care of her, and by the bye, she must show me her Blessing." I must not forget to ask for it. She has a very pretty garden, and part of her wee Estate is planted with thriving peach, plum, apricot and apple trees. `;The "mineral" is desert alkali that rises to the surface when the land is over- irrigated. 97
