“It is impossible to see more beautiful fields: there is not a lump of earth that has not been worked to perfection, prepared for seeding. Wheat will grow and thrive, and seems to recover in these lands all of the conditions which are required to make it prosper. In the second year they seed beans for the horses, as oats do not grow here. Lupins are also seeded, which at this time are already green, and bear their fruit in the month of March. Flax is already sown; in the earth all Winter, and the cold and ice render them tougher.”
Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Italian Journey.
