The boxes are ready in the yard, they will be filled with grapes from wednesday. We have half a hectare more than last year, 28 new boxes are bought. Alain has spend a couple of hours to name them.
This means, that everybody, who sell grapes in the cooperative, can see, that the other owners deliver good quality grapes. And they do comment each others deliveries as they queue up for the weighing.
Each box contains 50 kilos. We just need so many, that we won't run out of empty boxes even a batch should spend the night at the coop. If we really get in trouble, we have managed to borrow boxes from winegrower-friends, but this is only possible when we don't work the same days.
