Greetings! Happy June 23rd. We have been doing lots of work in the vineyard this year and we are proud to say that it’s starting to look…like a vineyard.
Grape Vines? Check. Identifiable rows? Check.
Trellis? Checkish. We have some more trellis building in store for the fall, but as you can see, there are vines on the first wire and that is a glorious thing. The top wire and trellis for rows 14-24 are forthcoming. To be continued, as it were. Either way, this is a monumental leap forward from where we were back in the fall of 2012 when this was just a crazy idea. The crazy part hasn’t entirely changed, but if we weren’t a little crazy it wouldn’t be any fun!
Oh, and grapes!
This is the third growing season (Can you believe it? Already?) and as we promised a few years back, we should have some grapes by year three or four. It will probably be a small harvest being the first one, but we are excited for anything at this stage. Who knows? Could be a good old-fashioned grape stomping party this fall.
Just kidding.. Maybe. You never know around here!
