Back in Provence

I wish this photo could show just how spectacular this rainbow was. I have never seen such a huge rainbow. Maybe it was because the sun was setting and shining directly across the sky to the water in the air. It was almost other-wordly and a delight to see.
We are back in Provence and returned to find a new crop of weeds and everything looking healthy and green, especially our grass, as it has been raining alot. I even had a crop of eggplants, zuchinni, and tomatoes waiting even though I didn’t leave a timed watering system going.

Here is the pile of zuchinni and eggplant. I ended up making a huge dish of ratatouille and then some eggplant parmesean. One of the zuchinnil is the largest zuchinni I’ve ever seen. It must weigh about 10 pounds and it was a foot and a half long. It has really tough skin and is rather woody tasting so I’m not sure if I’m going to cook anything with it or not.
