    New Trellis System

    These are my new trellis systems I put in this fall. The old trellis posts were 4 x 4's with post stakes. They held up for 6 or 7 years on my 2 Marquis vines and maybe 4 years on my 3 Reliance vines but eventually the post stakes became too loose in the ground. The new end posts are cemented in...

    Marquis grape harvest

    The grapes on my 3 backyard Marquis vines were ripe and the birds, bees and squirrels have started their annual grape feast again. These are table grapes and we just can't eat them faster than the pests so I picked them all today and will make wine. I have about 45 lbs of grapes and guess that...

    This years hydrangeas are the nicest they have ever been. I think they are liking all the rain we have been getting this summer. :db Larry

    Anything for $100

    A 71 year old man is having a drink in a Chicago bar. Suddenly a gorgeous 19 year old girl enters and sits down a few seats away. The girl is so attractive that he just can’t take his eyes off her. After a short while the girl notices him staring, and...

    Fort Lauderdale We just got back from our cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. We arrived at the airport on Thursday the day before the shootings. Our cruise left Saturday and normally we would have flown in the day before but this year we decided we would take an extra day in the sun. Our hotel...

    Red Raspberry from July 2011

    We went to a friend's home for dinner yesterday and in the wine basket they found a bottle of red raspberry I gave them that I made in July 2011. It is (was) the oldest wine of mine that has not been consumed. It was really mellow and tasty. The color had faded a little but it went with dinner...

    Puddle Fishing

    The rain was pouring down. And there standing in front of a big puddle outside the pub, was an old man drenched, holding a stick, with a piece of string dangling in the water. A passer-by stopped and asked, "What are you doing?" "Fishing" replied the old man. Feeling sorry for the old man...

    Walker's Juice

    I made my annual fall trip to Walker's this week. 5 gallon pails of French Concord, Blackberry, Peach, Pear, and Niagara this year. It looked like their stock is down from the severe drought we had this summer. :b Larry

    Abnormally Dry

    Here in western New York it has been very dry. Should I start watering my backyard Reliance and Marquis grapevines? If so how often. I don't want to do more harm than good. Larry

    The Bottle of Wine

    For all of you who are married, were married, wish you were married or wish you were not married, this is something to smile about the next time you see a bottle of wine. Ed was driving home from one of his business trips, in Northern Arizona , when he saw an elderly Navajo man walking...

    Walkers opened last week

    Walkers opened last Thursday. Their letter arrived Thursday. I was there at 9AM Friday and left with a bucket each of Concord, Blackberry, Delaware, Catawba, and Isabella. I've made wine from their Concord and Blackberry juices before and they are proven winners. I am looking forward to trying...
