I needed to go by the vineyard tonight on my way home from work.
Whoever is reading this, I hope you never feel like I did today - the stiffness and soreness from working that jackhammer bent over those holes was unreal. So I needed to go have a look and just enjoy the sight of those deer fence posts in the ground - made me feel better.
While I was out, I walked through the vineyard checking the new vines for bud break, and sure enough about 25% of the vines have already pushed. Seems the cabernet franc is a little further along than the viognier - I'm curious about that so I'll have to read up on it later.
I also checked out last year's vines and wow - they are really off to a great start. I was worried that transplanting them would be too traumatic - apparently not!
And here's a shot looking across the end posts - you can see the horizontal posts that I still have to install for bracing. Thankfully the crew was nice enough to set them all out for me, which would have been a huge pain if I had to do that!
