Winter lettuces in the Limousin, France.

Lovely crunchy looking Winter lettuces growing in a vegetable garden in France. Country folk in the Limousin are expert vegetable and fruit growers, in fact they are not really interested in growing flowers or having a lawn. They use their garden for strictly practical purposes - growing things to eat! Very sensible.  They eat 'la salade' throughout the year chopped up with vinaigrette served alongside  - generally -  a  thin soup, and this is how the older generation in rural  France  live so long and are so healthy,  and thin!
