Gone to Seed – Montée en graines

Château de Villandry

I try to eat my lettuces before they reach such heights but I don’t have as many. Now that we go slug hunting twice a day, the population has diminished considerably and even my dahlias, which I dug up and repotted after they were totally stripped of their leaves, are reviving.

J’essaie de manger mes salades avant qu’elles n’atteignent de telles hauteurs mais il faut dire que je n’en ai pas autant. Maintenant que nous allons à la chasse aux limaces deux fois par jour, la population a considérablement diminué et même mes dahlias, que j’ai déterrés et rempotés après qu’ils ont été totalement dépouillés de leurs feuilles, revivent.

Good heavens. What kind of lettuces are those? Here, in hot weather, they must be eaten when they are small and new, otherwise, bitter. I guess that is not the case there. Sigh. Glad you are winning in the slug confrontation.
