It has been about a month since my last update. I’m happy to report that the weeds are being beaten back for the most part and the vines are growing very well. After flooding rains in June things have dried out considerably. In all of July we only received about 1/2 inch of rain. That’s fine as there is plenty of moisture under the soil. Just a few days ago we received another 1/3 of an inch just to moisten things up. So far the vines look strong and I’m hoping the moisture level slowly recedes down into the ground to encourage the roots to go deeper. I’ll keep my eye on them and give ’em some water if I see any signs of distress. Here are some updated photos of the vineyard and surrounding pasture.
