One of the places I like to walk to in the afternoon, when I go out with Callie the collie, is down this fairly steep hill to the lower northeast corner of the Renaudière vineyard. At the very bottom is a field that's often planted in wheat or colza. Down there is the bottom land of the river valley. Our house and the vineyard is on the heights.
Of course, one of the requirements for walking down there is a willingness to walk back up to the house afterwards! Callie doesn't mind, and I don't either. At my age, it's very good exercise.
Along the edge of the vineyard, there is that little orchard where the neighbor posted his hand-made Propriété Privée sign (see yesterday's post). The tree above is a peach tree. It needs to be a very hot summer for the peaches here to ripen before pests get into them, but sometimes there are some to pick in August or September.
The new greenhouse we had put up last November is proving to be both a huge improvement to our house and a boon to our gardening efforts. It's still far too early to set plants out in the vegetable garden plot, but the seedlings are sprouting in the greenhouse. The view above is what people walking or driving by on the road can see of the greenhouse if they look. By the way, it's cold this morning — +6ºC, which is just barely above 40ºF.
