We’ve been too busy to post!

It’s been awhile since we’ve updated here, but no worries! We’ve been super busy and have been too busy or tired to post but we have made tons of progress on the vineyard. Last time we posted, we had just placed our vine order. Four varieties, totalling 810 vines: Vidal Blanc, Traminette, Chambourcin, and Cabarnet Franc. So, what have we been up to since then?

Back in February, we started working on our fencing and trellis system. An order was place with Lykens Valley Fencing for all the supplies to build an 8 foot deer fence and enough posts and wire for 12 450 foot rows of a trellis system. At this point, we almost have all the posts in the ground and we’re hoping to have the fence done in the next few weeks.  The shale in the area has been causing us some headaches but with the rock auger bit we bought we are slowly getting through the shale.

In addition to the fencing, we designed our barn with Rocky Mountain Structures back in March. The construction of that was completed just a few days ago.

The most important part? On April 13th, our huge vine order was delivered and we were up bright & early the 14th to get started. One by one, we planted and watered each vine. It took us until this past Saturday to plant the last few vines; only a few hours before the rain finally came.

We couldn’t have got this far without help from friends and family so we want to thank the following people so far:  Carol Crum, Brad Crum, Al Michael, Andy Engle, Dana Michael, Josh Miller, Alyx Bowen, Dave Zellers, Denise Zellers, Dave Zellers, Jr., Jon Lindsay, and Porter the Dog.  Check out our Facebook to see more pictures.

    • Came here from tatertots and jello, I bleeive, for your scone recipe? anyway, I sort and everyone is washed together. I have bins in the bathroom. The kids are young enough that baths are at night and so their dirty clothes are taken off there. I use Tide Free and Clear so all clothes, even baby clothes, are washed together. I presort now in the upstairs bath and then main level wash. I stay at home with the kids so I try to wash all laundry in a day or two. I could not imagine doing a load a day. I would pull my hair out!My key to staying on top of it is nothing comes out of the dryer to just sit in a bin. As soon as it comes out of the dryer I go up to master bedroom and sort in piles for each person. When kids are old enough they put away their own clothes.I dont think I will try your method now but will definitely remember it when the kids are older!
