A LETTER FROM THE EDITORIAL DESK
Smoke from the barrel of my 17 HMR lingers and yet the varmints reproduce at a dizzying rate.
Incessant humping by the "yellow-toothed ground goblin" has proved to be a nuisance, but thanks to some sturdy sights, I sleep soundly at night and most of the damage hitherto has been avoided. We're doing our best.
Our Baby Block of Cinsaut is flourishing in it's second year and I have a good mind to plant the rest of this ranch to head-trained vines at 11'x11' spacing.
Don't tell the head office that I have plans to expand the vineyard. I might be summarily dispatched.
The wide spacing allows for great vigor and water efficiency, and scoping out the aforementioned enemy is a snap. Those little bastards have no place to hide.
The meter by meter Syrah block is a fruitful yet beastly way to farm. It might do me in.
I'll send photos of everything next week. Bunkhouse, Orchard, Lake and Meter by Meter blocks will all be giving us significant new fruit. Exciting!
Send ice packs.
