Fat Deer

Can I get another "GOOD GRIEF!"

And now the deer are enjoying the fact that we live in Connecticut... Have to say that our research vineyard has taught us quite a bit about pest management - which was a major factor we were evaluating with this planting. Next step will be the final season measurements to evaluate vigor on the different rootstocks.

One thing is for sure - if the vines can withstand total neglect with us living in Connecticut, they are going to flourish with proper care.

Soil contamination, bugs, neighbors w/ questionable motives, cold air, hurricanes, tornados, flooding and now deer? I had no idea they liked grapes. or is it the actual plants that they're munching on?
