I do not water everything, I give priority to what is quickly harvested like pickles and zucchini. It’s been two months since I reduced the amount of water
Daniel, a dedicated garden tenant, answered when asked how he’s coping with drought. Early in the afternoon, on August 9, he was one of the few who dared face the sun on the plots of Faubourg d’Isle.

For 10 years, I’ve been weighing and counting everything I harvest: that’s between 2,000 and 2,200 euros of vegetables per year.
Daniel concludes.
