>In the meantime… – #1009


…while Heiko contemplates his role as Hercules for the next 7 years, the rest of the team opened up the family courtyard for the Open Gardens thingie.
They USED to have a winebar (sorely missed) during the summer months which was SO worth the 30 minute drive and we got to know Heiko and his brother Achim fairly well.
They do the vineyard bit of the farm and have another brother, Uwe, who does the agrarian bit, and lives a few 100 metres down the road.

So it was a real treat to meet his wife, Waltraud, and oldest daughter Anna the other day, selling all sorts of home-made goodies – pesto, noodles, elderberry syrup – from a stall in the courtyard

  1. >I know it's a hard life, but it seems so idyllic as you post it. The young woman looks terrific because she is YOUNG; nothing wrong with the looks of "women of a certain age" however, reality creeps in!! Our experience and wisdom is far superior, tho!

  2. >Vin? Never touch the stuff myself. VPS WHy couldn't you MAKE me look that good?
