All kidding aside, this has been such a busy summer. I know I have tanked on my blog, but I will get it all back and keep you entertained with my daily craziness...I promise!
So how do you do when your passion becomes your obsession? (You know this is going to be about our grapes didn't you?)
You know when you're obsessed when your vineyard looks that good and your prized rock flower bed filled with sedum, marigolds, and assorted other flowers looks this bad.
I wince when people come up the driveway. Although I probably should obsess more about the obstacle course I mean driveway that they have to drive slowly through. The kids and their toys!
Come on...doesn't this look like more fun than....
THIS????? Yes, that is a thistle bush. I repeat, a thistle bush.
Besides, the new family I have (since I don't see my human family anymore) say, "work in the grapes...oh yeah, feed us all the vines. They're super yummy!"
These are the Marquettes aren't they beautiful? You can see all the dark clusters in the background. There's a lot of picking to be done!
This is Jessica who came along with me to take some pictures. I think she got that apple off the floor. I think if I make hamburger helper one more time this year my poor kids will throw it at me.
Remember, I'm an obsessed vinter.
Last picture...the La Cresents. Aren't they a beautiful sight? They would be if you were me and faced at least four hours a day in the hot sun, rain, ice and sleet (wait, is that me or the mailman?) anyway, went through grape disease, weeds, crop destroying birds etc.
To have this.
Listen to me! I am obsessed!
Helper Teryaki...not the ticket.
