les tomates

Tomatoes came to France in 1790, from the Americas via Italy, and in France, as here, tomatoes are now integral to cuisine.

Audrey, cheerful, curious, quick-learner, came to us from Paris as a first-time WWOOFer in late July.

It's been a great tomato year so far. Although temperatures have been far below normal so far this summer, the tomatoes are reaching a good size and ripening steadily. A looming heat wave should give us enough ripe ones to begin drying some.
