animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook


It’s official–we now have a vineyard. My parents were in the Finger Lakes region last week and they brought me home five Riesling grape vines. I wasn’t sure where to put them at first as we are running out of real estate at an alarming rate, but I decided the myrtle patch on the side of the house would be the perfect location. It’s guaranteed to have crappy soil (which grapes like) and is in full sun (which grapes also like). Hopefully they will survive the winter.
