Photograph byB.Anthony Stewart ISLANDERS WORK IN GLASS HOUSES, BUT LIVE IN HOMES OF STONE Guernsey's "growing industry" has mushroomed so fast that the original character of the landscape has been greatlyaltered. Hundreds ofacres areunder glass. Even beans, peas, and potatoes are raised profitably in winter (page 385). Fig, lemon, and peach trees are planted indoors,their branches trained togrow flatagainst the walls and cling beneath the low roofs. Most of the stone farm dwellings belong to an age when commercial greenhouseswere unknown here.
