>Spanish breakfast in the garden / Un petit déjeuner espagnol au jardin

The tomatoes are ripening and the best time of day to work in the garden is the early morning before it gets too hot.  This morning in the garden we picked tomatoes straight from the plants to make the breakfast we’ve had in Catalunya and in Andalucia: peeled, chopped tomatoes with salt and olive oil on bread.  A wonderful start to the day!

Les tomates murissent et la meilleure heure du jour pour travailler au jardin est le matin avant qu’il fait trop chaud.  Ce matin nous avons ramassé des tomates pour faire le petit déjeuner que nous avons mangé en Catalogne et en Andalucia: des tomates pelées et hachées avec du sel et de l’huile d’olive sur des tranches de pain.

Today’s harvest / La récolte d’aujourd’hui

Plane trees update / Les platanes – mise à jour

There are rumours that it may be even worse than we feared and that the felling of plane trees in the village is part of a wider plan to cut down all the plane trees in the Hérault and Aude départements.  There will be a meeting next week to discuss the situation and what we can do about it.

On dit que peut-être c’est pire que nous avons craint et qu’il y a un project d’abattre tous les platanes dans l’Hérault et l’Aude.  Un réunion aura lieu la semaine prochaine pour discuter ce qu’on peut faire.

  1. >What a gorgeous harvest! A question: what type of courgettes are they? I notice the bi-color stripes…something that I haven't seen here.We are definitely experiencing a cool summer this year. Ah well, that gives me something to anticipate for the next season!

  2. >Maybe that's why the Luberon is so popular–they don't destroy their heritage. Driving through these "alleys" the temperature is 2-3 degrees lower than in the sun. In the Luberon, they lowered the speed limits to 80 km/hr on the tree-lined roads, but kept them. Another way would be guardrails between roads and trees.We are just buying a house in Gabian and were there in June. We'd be out there protesting with you if we would be there. Let me know if you need letters.
