Goodbye green pastures
These last years we have let weeds grow, put clover seeds in some plots and grass seeds in others to reach around two thirds of our vineyards coloured green rather than brown at the bottom.
Now it's over.
For the timebeing, that is.
A heatwave with temperatures at 35 degrees Celsius or more makes the vines suffer because the green stuff sucks too much water.
So we may have spend a lot of time with this green carpet (that does not even look very green these days) but now it has to go.
Thus Alain spent these last days - early mornings, late evenings - to plough it all away.
