Description: 
Vineyard with an angle furrow through residual growth. (They do not plant but allow the natural growth to constitute the cover.) Soil rather dark - loam to sand - with granitic rocks finely powdered - looks rich. Erodium cicutarium called Goesbloem. Near this a planting of what they call barley wheat, a hulless [sic] barley if I am not mistaken. Also a young crop (3 inches high) and one coming into head at the same time. [Shantz travel journal, Aug. 18, 1919]
