We did it. Finally the end of lifting threads and putting back stems behind them. Alain finished the lower plot this afternoon.
In the meantime the younger stems in the upper plot has grown so much that they now are to put back behind the threads as well. So even we feel finished, there is still a walk of an afternoon in the upper plot waiting for us.
There is always something to do, but now we just want to think, that we are finished at least for the rest of the day. It is the first time in one month that the tractors can make their way through to cut the tops of the vines without too much damage.
