30 Jun And in the vineyard . . .
Dave has started the (mostly) rewarding, but fastidious job of pruning the vines. All 4,200 of them! And like with most things at Moombaki, the attention to detail makes all the difference. It’s no quick haircut, but a careful selection of the best looking cane; with fruitful wood; well interspersed nodes; and at the right height. At the same time looking for a spur or two for next year; cleaning up the tangle that’s left; then carefully wrapping and tying down selected cane with a wire twist (no plastic here). It’s okay Dave, only 4,016 to go . . . Have you heard about how wet and wild it has been down here?
