Trellis Update

Enjoying the last bit of the morning coffee before heading out to the vineyard to begin installing cordon wire on the new trellis. The crew was out pounding posts all day yesterday and got about an acre done. We bought one of those silly little Kodak HD video cameras so I'll try to upload a video for you all to check this nonsense out.

It is so cool to stand at the peak of the vineyard hill by Sagle Road and look the whole way across the newly completed rows, perfectly aligned with the old rows. Have to make a quick repair to the spinning jenny to pay out the wire, then it will be time to bang in about 3,000 or so fencing nails over the next few weeks.

Thus I am typing this morning because I likely won't physically be able to for some time. Hey look, how about another cup of coffee [stalling...]
