I asked one of the people who work in the vineyard why these flags were tied to end posts in regular intervals. It turns out that they're there to indicate which row to drive the large sprayer down when the vines are being treated against fungus. The sprayer covers four rows on either side, so it only needs to be driven down every eighth row.
The vine tendrils are reaching skyward.
The vegetable garden is in (with the minor exception of planting some green bean seeds). Now it's just a matter of keeping it weeded and watered.
Living outside of Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher since 2003. You'll find here pictures and descriptions of our daily life in rural France, some travels, and other stuff about me, my husband Ken, our dog Callie, and our cat Bertie.
