End of a row…

…and nearly the end of pruning!  I apologise again for not having been on WordPress and liking or commenting on posts.  This is a snapshot of my working day at the moment – we will finish the major pruning this Thursday 🙂 🙂  Some interesting facts that went through my head the other day…approx 22,500 vines to prune but a double canopy so equivalent of 45,000 and each vine has four arms (cordons) held down by a total of 90,000 cable ties which takes around 3 months labour as all done by hand!!

Also my entry for MMC week 28 hosted and curated by Leanne Cole.

    Nice shot and view of your “office”. Growing up in grape country, I know just how much hand work there is to keeping a vineyard healthy and productive. Good to hear from your Lisa 🙂

    It is good to hear from you and love the image!
    Wishing you a finish really soon. A mammoth task and hopefully satisfying when done.

    I like the way that the clouds ‘conspire’ to contribute to the magnetic perspective. Great timing. now put away your camera and grow our wine 😉

    Great perspective Lisa……and I know that your hard effort definitely shines in the bottle.

      Thanks Andy – it isn’t as monotonous as you might think, each vine is different and you get to see some amazing wildlife, but yes I am glad we have finished!
