But when will we finally see the sun for real? It’s officially summer this Friday and so far it’s not very hot, around 16 degrees when you wake up this Friday morning according to Météo France, no less than 23 this Friday afternoon. In the shared gardens, we impatiently await the arrival of the sun like in Balma, right next to the metro, on the Périole site.

Halim is celebrating his first year at the Balma shared gardens and he is impatiently awaiting the arrival of the sun. Because this rainy weather is delaying the arrival of fruits and vegetables a little. “It’s good for the land, so that we can work the land, but it’s not good for the plants. There are slugs and water, snails that eat the plants and all that, and that It’s annoying. So, we make slug traps but I hope this weather won’t last because for vegetables, you need sun, almost all summer vegetables: eggplants, peppers,. tomatoes. There are strawberries and salads too. Plus, the majority of people here are retirees and this weather doesn’t really make them want to go out.

Un cocktail florissant

In the alleys, there are actually not many people, around four courageous people out of the 700 and a few cabins on the site. including that of Daniel, boots on his feet and a hat on his head. This fifty-year-old worker has been coming for three years, in all weathers. And he says thank you to the rain. “This weather is good because the earth is very fragile, clay too. This weather is impeccable. The zucchini are about two weeks old and very, very fresh. And the taste is not the same as those we buy at Intermarché or Biocoop.”

We must therefore be patient and tell ourselves one thing, this rain then sun cocktail will produce beautiful fruits and vegetables, within a few weeks predicts Halim who comes very regularly with his two children aged eight and twelve. Sun and heat according to Météo France for the start of next week which will allow Halim to finally take out his barbecue.
