  Day Ten
Monday, August 8, 2016
Finished picking Merlot. 10 straight days of picking, now a couple of days out of the sun to re-coop before going on to the next grape. Don’t know yet which one will be ready but will let you know. The last two days have been the hardest for me in the vineyard. The heat seemed so much worse than previously. Will take more pictures when we start up again.
