Thumbs Up

The morning after the big forest fire here last week I phoned up a neighbouring expat in a hamlet over the other side of the valley, who had been on the receiving end of the northern extent of the fire.  They were all OK too.

He told me about the phenomenon of mutated vegetables and plants after a fire.  It’s apparently due to the large amount of ethylene released into the atmosphere.

A strange theory, but it seems the aubergines are already giving that one the thumbs-up!

Aubergines? Like.
