All good here in the Touraine, it’s been a bit hot though! Still home produce as much as I can, and as ‘him indoors’ has now retired he is keen to give a hand with sausages etc.

From my garden, I've been getting mostly red bell peppers called "Marconi". I roast these until blackened then remove the skin and seeds. Eggplants and Lima beans are coming along; I think I'll plant fall stuff soon.

Fall (autumn) stuff's already been planted here - it's the overwintering crops that'll be going in next. They're fine peppers by the looks of them.
