Interesting read - and to think, I actually took three years of French in high school!!! I never could speak it well, but at least I used to be able to read it... That’s really cool that you have different varieties of Favorelles where you are! I think that the US has two varieties, but the salmon is much more common... I looked back at your marans post and agree that he is looking more boyish with that comb... but maybe not, still a little young! Thanks for the encouragement about the heat tolerance. We haven’t exceeded 100 F yet this year, but it’s just a matter of time!
