Ripe Mara Des Bois and Juliet
Department of fruit being red so animals will eat it and spread the seeds and Leslie will notice it and take a picture.
This arrangement is not a put up job, honor bright. I came in with only a few strawberries – more on the elusive Mara des Bois shortly – so I just threw them in the basket on the kitchen table on top of the Juliet plum tomatoes, our favorites for drying.
More on that, too, before long, but right now I have to go make supper: chantarelle and lobster-mushroom chowder with la ratte potatoes and what’s left of the grilled sea bass we had last night.
