Vineyard trellis wires

Yesterday, Mark finished stringing all the trellis wires in the vineyard. It is looking great! He really did it.

Tightening the last wire:

All finished!

Half of the vineyard. The plants are all doing really well. We had a problem with deer eating some leaves recently and we manually pick off and squash Japanese beetles twice a day (only about 3 a day now total, rather than three per plant as it was last month. Out of the 50 plants planted only one didn’t grow. Pretty good ratio!

It looked like it was going to pour down rain, but alas it never did. 😦
