On Your Marks, Get Set, Grow!

The little  baby grape vines are now planted! My husband had his friends and family work crew here last week and they gently placed them all into the ground. Now, it is all up to the roots to do their stuff, soaking up the moisture and nutrients in the soil and producing leaves to bathe in the summer sun. All we have left to do is watch, at least until spraying and pruning is due.

All the preparation paid off so that the planting was quick and easy. 05301511120530151112a

The last step was to set up a drip irrigation system for insurance in case of a drought. 0601151017

Now, to wait for three years for our first harvest.
