November in the Cher River Valley

The first time we ever saw the house in Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher was on December 10, 2002 — a year ago. And the first night we spent here was June 12, 2003. That was six months ago, but it seems like yesterday.

Digging up plots and turning the soil for next spring's vegetable garden is one of our biggest tasks right now. The ground is wet and soft, but it's mostly clay and turning it over is hard work. We plan to have four 4 m x 4 m plots for tomatoes, beans, leeks, collard greens, radishes, and whatever strikes our fancy. We have about half an acre (2300 m2) of land, on the edge of the vineyards.
