French visit

This is week I was near Agen, France, half way between Bordeaux and Toulouse.  This is where we get our chillies for the summer from (Morocco being for the winter supply) but their main crop is sweetcorn, as well as growing kiwi fruit and sweet potato.

They have had a very hot period (at the same time as the UK and Spain) but last week 50mm of rain helped all the crops significantly.  Sweetcorn is early but the chilli crop is on track to start on time, meaning a gap between Morocco and France should be avoided, (this is not always the case!)
