The vineyard today

Jump to Comments

Seiyia, Alexia and I walked through the vineyard this evening to check how the grapes are doing. As I mentioned in the previous post, some of the grapes are just beginning to turn pink now although the majority of them are still very green.

We have a good crop on the vines so we are hoping to make a little more wine than we managed last year. More on that in another post.

In the meantime, here is a picture of the girls and the grapes. As always ready to taste a few and curious to know “Are they sweet or sour Mama? ” These are still very sour.


  • I’m wondering if you ever have visitors come to observe the vineyards? We are missionaries living in Westlands.

    Hi Louise. We met a couple of years ago in Lethbridge, Alberta when I organized a lecture at the University of Lethbridge. Anyway, great pictures, and I enjoy reading your adventures in grape growing.
