"Of the world’s great work he has done his share who has gathered a crop of wheat."
Andrew Barton Paterson (1864-1941)
10 days ago - after onions had been pulled from the earth & left to dry on the fields, in the natural way, cured by the sun & seasalt breeze - veteran onion seller François Séité & new generation "Johnnie" Olivier Le Sann met to gather the wheat stems that will serve as the backbones of onion bundles.
|Olivier Le Sann, from Plougoulm, keen on keeping alive the traditional cross-Channel trade, |
has been making regular trips to Winchester for around 15 years.
