Fall goings-on

The annual grape harvest is winding down now. There are still a few parcels out there to be harvested, but the growers are waiting, probably for more ripeness, probably for more sugar. I saw one of our local growers out among the vines early Wednesday morning testing the grapes in one parcel of red. And the late harvest whites are still on the vine.

A parcel of white grapes, probably sauvignon, long harvested.

The guy that does our hedge trimming let me know we're on his radar and he'll let us know soon when he plans to do the work. Ken called our garbage company for an appointment to pick up objets encombrants (stuff too big for regular garbage pick-up). We have a couple of items for them. They used to come through town for big stuff once a year on a certain day, but now they're requiring individual appointments.

Friday is supposed to be a nice day, so I'm planning to finish the garden clean-up. There are stakes to put away, a trellis to take down, and a few other things I'd like to do before it starts raining again.
