Spring Love on a Good Friday
J has been hard at work in our little vineyard. Two years ago, he planted Chambourcin and Corot Noir grapes, 5 in all. Last year, he bought a mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cayuga and Chambourcin. They've been heeled in, allowing them to grow a bit in a protected space, and now are ready to be planted out. The vineyard is just off to the right when we look out our front door, with the pond just to the left. We're hoping there will be some nice views before too long, between the two. The Corot Noir grapes we ate fresh last year were the best grapes I have ever tasted. The Cayuga are also said to be good fresh. So, we've got that, should our winemaking skills be less than stellar.
There is so much to do, outside and in, it's been hard to spend much time on the computer.
