Harvest 2008

It was not a pretty day by any means. Although it did not rain, the threat was there and the wind was strong. Jokes kept us warm as we proceeded on both sides of the rows.
There could be no complaint this year about the bounty - no frost or rot damage to the crop.
The better looking clusters saved from the press were going home with the harvesters' table.
A glance at the scenery - in better weather we would sit under the walnut tree and enjoy the afternoon sharing food and stories - but today, we hurried home.

Hello Isadora. Those grapes look wonderful! If I would have thought about it, I would have kept the seeds from the grapes that I made jelly from and planted them next year. The harvesting around our area is primarily corn and soybeans.

A beautiful report of grape harvest.

The wine will be good this year?

Thanks for sharing the wonderful scenery and glimpse into the wineyard world. I bet the work is backbreaking, having to hunch over for hours.

Glad to hear the bounty was plenty.

This looks very much like my own valley. Grapes, open spaces, hills in the distance...it's homey!
