This Just Got Serious

Funny how life works two years ago I just met my wife and I hated the idea of wine. The only adult drink I liked a hoppy ale or thick stout. Then we picked 100 pounds of cranberries and had nothing to do with so we made wine for wedding (Huge Hit). Now I just put the posts in for a trellis at my in-laws farm. 2 rows of 220 feet enough for 60 vines!!!(20 frontenac, 15Marquette, 10 St. Croix, 8 Lacresecant, and I guess I will have to get 7 more). How exciting. The middle posts are 8 feet by 3-4inches only 1.97 at Home depot. My father law actually used a level on each pole and lined them exactly so they are in a perfect line. And the end posts are ginormous recycled railroad ties. Post whole digger is the way to go!!!!
I dont know if it matters too much bit the rows are only 8ft apart. There are raspberries in the middle of the rows that will tilled down next year. Otherwse the rest of the field is for for strawberries. Hope you enjoy the pics.

The pictures make me think there may have been a little wine involved! Also looks like you're having a lot of fun! Keep it up!

If the rest of the field is for strawberries, I'd check the pH on the vineyard side, if you haven't already. It's my understanding that strawberries like a pretty acidic soil. -Bret
