Weekend in the vineyard

Our lower plot in Loisy-en-Brie.

The stems hook themselves up to anything they meet.

Plastic staples keep the double thread together and the stems between the wires.

The vines still bloom.

One and a half day in the lower plot with Meunier-vines. 15 lines are finished. This means:

  • The double thread has been lifted.
  • Stems growing outside the protection of the fence have been put back.
  • Plastic staples have been placed.
  • The feet of the vines have been cleaned for stems growing towards the next line.

    Left to do is another 21 lines, a bit more than half the plot, since the lines are not all the same length.

    We will enter another week with pleasant temperatures and risk of storms. It would be real nice to be able to finish this task soon...
