Petite Sirah 2015
Yesterday at about 10 am with temperatures in the mid 70s F, we harvested out first Petite Sirah grapes. Some were partially eaten and some were in a state of decay. But the time was now to bring the clusters in.
As you can see, the battle cry of 30 or so quail led us to action. The wallowers made a good mess of is known as the triangle. All corn was picked at two or three inches by the bobble heads and only five or so squash plants survived. But the grapes were under cover in the back and only recently found by the beak heads. So we retrieved as much as we could.
