Vineyard installation

Working with Tahoe Ridge Wnery and Full Circle Compost, we have plowed up 1/2 acre of old pasture that has well drain soil. In a few weeks, we will rototill the field and begin forming rows. On March 1st, 300 bare root Frontenac red wind grape vines will be arriving from New York. We will be ammending the soil and augering the holes in early March. We will be putting up grape trellises and installing a drip irrigation system. The grape variety belongs to a group of species called "interspecific hybrids" that we hope tolerate extreme drops in temperature as well as widely fluctuating temperatures. Stay tuned; Ed
