Burning the old season

At last our pile of tomato plants, olive tree prunings and other unwanted vegetation had dried out enough to make a bonfire, so we had a good Sunday morning’s work in the garden. Lo Jardinièr managed the fire, and watched it carefully because even after rain there’s always a danger of wild fire here, and planted out some Garriguette strawberry plants our neighbour had given us, while I did a bit more pruning of olives and roses.

It was warm in the sun when we were working in the garden, and the rosemary is still flowering:

We came home at lunchtime hungry and very glad that I’d prepared a lamb tagine yesterday. The recipe is on the Food from the Mediterranean blog – click on the link in the sidebar.
