Below are two photos of our Meter by Meter block, currently undergoing a heavy-duty haircut. The first few rows are mostly covered in wild oats. As we delve deeper into this block we encounter a sea of Vetch. We're cleaning all of this up right now and training these rapidly maturing vines in a vertically staggered gobelet (head trained) manner. This is the 3rd leaf for this block (3 years old), and we should get a decent little harvest from these vines this year. This is own rooted Estrella Clone Syrah planted in extremely cramped-quarters. It will deliver smaller-than-usual berries with nuanced flavor.
Until next week,
