Le Potager

One of the most fascinating part of the french lifestyle is le jardin potager, the vegetable garden where they plant everything essential in the kitchen to prepare the palate stimulating meals.

Here are some of the images taken in Chateau de Chenonceau in the Loire Valley in France.
Le jardinage or gardening is an inherent part of their culture which could be traced back in history.

They take pride in cultivating crops from herbs to a huge variety of legumes most oftenly surrounded by fruit bearing trees. The family would usually give the house guests a tour of the potager before enjoying an afternoon coffee at the terrace.

Imagine a starter with freshly harvested lettuce and the most plump tomatoes you've ever seen.

A healty organic diet, what more could we ask for?

Have a great weekend everyone! Bisous!
