Holiday-ing in Languedoc

Market-Day-Uzès-France

We are back from our holidays in France, in Languedoc.

Pictures were not all taken by me (too difficult with 3 young kids to supervise), it is just for the pleasure of the eyes. The pleasure mainly to buy directly from the producers (when possible).

We ate in galore: melons, zucchinis, tomatoes, apricots, plums, goat cheese…
Our house had a lovely vegetables garden providing us with different kinds of tomatoes, zucchinis, bell peppers…let’s not forget our 4 hens providing us with a few eggs each days ( a hen can produce between 180-280 eggs a year depending on the breed) to the delight of the kids and the adults.

We also gave them a lot of the peels which were intended to the compost as well as their own eggshells (wonderful source of calcium for the chicken).

Needless to say that a lot of people grow their own vegetables and fruits without the help of any chemicals.

It is also one of the largest wine world producers.

The region is blessed with enough rain and sunshine to grow almost anything.
Sadly, it was not the season of figs and blackberries, we missed them by a month.
Wonderful family times, food, wine, scenery, hikes in nature, kayaking, medieval towns all over the region.

Happy to be back in Asia.
