New vines, part two

Here's a view of the newly planted grape vine parcel nestled in the larger vineyard. This is a morning shot, looking easterly into the sunrise. Our house is not visible; it's hidden by the trees on the left.

In a few years the gap will fill in and the new vine parcel will be indistinguishable from the older ones.

Today is a day for errands. I need gasoline for the lawnmower. Then I want to stop at a local winery and fill up on some red wine. Finally, I need to go to the hardware store to find a replacement spool for my débroussailleuse (weed-whacker/weed-eater/strimmer). One of the plastic tabs that holds it all together snapped last week while I was using it, so I need a whole new spool. I hope I can find the right one.

  1. "Then I want to stop at a local winery and fill up on some red wine." -bring some home, man; don't drink it all there; save some for ken! bwhahahaha!

    to get a new trimmer spool, one goes to lowe's or homo depot; there are no more independent hardware stores around here.

    1. anne marie, we fill up our jugs at the pump! The wine is sold from the barrel and there's a hose attached with a gas-pump-like nozzel on the end! Also, the hardware stores are chains. We don't have many independent shops, either.

  2. Hi, Walt. Your weather widget is showing up now on my iPad. How accurate are the predictions of La Chaîne Météo 15 days out? I hope you have better forecasters there than we have here in Seattle.

    1. dean, fifteen days out is not reliable at all. Three days, ok. Even a week is stretching it!
