My summer squash / zucchini have slowed almost to a crawl. Instead of getting 4 or 5 every day, like in early July, I get 1 every 4 or 5 days.
That’s fine… It’s September and I’ve already picked 36 Delicata squash.
I may even get a few butternut squash.

There was a carnival in one of the villages we rode through on our bike ride this morning.
Not a big one – they rarely are here, in the middle of nowhere.
We saw bumper cars (there are always bumper cars) but I didn’t see any other ‘rides’. It was set-up in the town square, which is small.
I’m guessing that the rest of the entertainment consisted of games to play, mainly for the kids, a cotton candy stand (there is always cotton candy) and, maybe, a ‘frites’ truck (French fries to the Americans).
And, this being a Sunday in France in September (1st month with an ‘R’ after summer), an oyster truck.
I haven’t used so many () in a long time.
We didn’t stop. It was too nice of a morning for a bike ride.
Besides, they didn’t have a Tilt-a-Whirl which I absolutely would have stopped for.
