At one point the farmers tie a bottle to a pear tree and stick a small branch with a blossom inside. They do this so, in a few months, the result will be a full sized pear inside the bottle, much too big to have been put into the bottle in the usual way. One of the farmers uses it to make a bottle of a pear flavored alcoholic drink, with the pear still inside, and the bottle, pear, and drink appear late in the film when the two farmers and Sandrine have a drink together.

when even sabotage cant stand in the way of friendship
A brave decision for an Internet-teacher in Paris: she leaves everything behind and buys a goat-farm in the south of France, away from all the things she is used to. In a remarkable way she manages to set up a guest-house and an Internet site, on which she sells her goat-cheese. The former owner, who still lives at the farm, starts so like the young woman very much. When they both suffer a fierce winter, it is the beginning of a friendship.
