Work Party October 17 2009


Twas a rainy day in the orchard, but we got some good work done in between showers.


The primary task was clearing blackberries from a spot for the new grape plants.


A rough preview of what the future line might look like.


And the first grape plant goes in! This Catawba (vitis labrusca), which should do well in our climate, is native to North America and was popular during the time the Piper family settled here.


Equipment and personnel!
