News Flash! On our most recent visit to favourite local creperie,Ti Couz (July 9th 2005), they had changed the brand of their French Brut Cidre to 'Le Village'. Despite the word 'brut' on the label, it is far too sweet for our tastes. As such, we can no longer highly recommend this beverage. Everything else at Ti Couz was still up to the usual high standards.

    But to grow your own is so much more worthy. This fine fellow was actually bought at the Farmers Market over a week ago and needed to be eaten promptly. It's true he was ripe and delicious.

    I am sure by the end of the summer you are going to be making the rest of us positively jealous with your home grown efforts.

    Great photo. I love this simple salad. Roll on summer in the southern hemisphere. I don't grow my own tomatoes but I do grow basil in summer.
