Stephanie Masson’s parents, Vincent and Yveline grow extraordinary vegetables and fruits in their backyard. Not only do they provide fresh and canned food for their own coffers, but for their daughter, three grandchildren and Christophe. Grown in the floodplain near Mirande, they produce several types of tomatoes, potatoes, beans, squash, melons, onions, garlic, and herbs, plus strawberries, raspberries, cherries, plums, and kiwi fruit. Yveline created a lovely salad with fresh tomatoes, basil and onions, whipped potatoes, and battered-fried squash blossom. Yum!
