Les Fermes de Gally...a reference in French self-pick farms

One of the best pick-your-own farms in France, Les Fermes de Gally, is not far from Versailles, and therefore, not that far from Paris. A real treat tiptoeing through the tulips and digging up leeks even on a drizzly Sunday in the mud.

cueillir:  to pick
la gadoue:  the mud
une pluie fine:  a drizzle
pluvieux, ieuse:  rainy
bottes en caoutchouc:  rubber boots
For your easy listening pleasure
La Gadoue with Petula Clark or try Jane Birken's more graphic version of the same tube (that's French slang for hit). Fun.
