Well, folks, we’ve finally realized a two-year long fantasy and are currently spending our days with our work boots on, up and down the rows of a vineyard.
The work is called trellising, and entails turning this:
Through a variety of methods such as un-racking and re-racking wires, pruning and weaving, into this:
Each row takes one person an hour or two, and there are several plots of over 30 rows each. We’ve also parked Leland in the back lot (thus the lack of internet connectivity) which makes our commute a particularly easy one. Other fun from the last few weeks:
J bouldering at Oatlands.
C and the Hazards.
C triumphant at Hillwood.
J at Great Oyster bay.
Ascending Mt. Wellington.
Lots of love!!
C and J
