Perfect garden, Saignon

In the Spring this garden was covered in new plants, just starting to produce. On the right are the tomato plants and a couple of rows of the pumpkins that they grow in Provence. They are large squash, meant for eating. The flesh is bright orange/red and delicious. At farmers markets one can buy a piece of one to suit the size of the meal. They also grow the halloween pumpkins we all know and love. The rows on the left had just been tilled and the earth was very fine. Most of the fields here are heavier with some clay. I think that this field has been lovingly worked on for a very long time.
