I’m sitting here at my computer writing this post and watching a tractor pick grapes in the vineyard block in front of my house. The time is 8:56 pm. We pick with machines at night when the fruit is cold and the machines work more efficiently. This marks our 10th harvest at this ranch. Very exciting time. Tonight things are going smoothly and the sound of the tractors lets me sleep sounder, knowing that our work is coming to an end for another growing season.
