Summer is Here!

Welcome to the life of the farmer. Once the grape vines start their growing season it is time for us to step up our pace. Our days often start at sunrise and end at sunset. Last Saturday Tim drove to Willcox to check on the grapes growing in the vineyards he purchases grapes from. Here he is getting the truck ready on Friday night to make sure nothing prevents an early departure. Why the 5:00 a.m. departure you may be asking? He needed to be back at the winery for opening time in the tasting room. After closing we headed out into the vineyard for more work with the vines. It is my favorite time to be out as the wind is usually quiet, the birds are doing their end of day thing and almost always there is a beautiful night sky. What more could a person ask for?
