other than horses

There has been lots going on on the farm and winery other than me driving horses - although that being said I went over to dunes tonight and drove my team with out Duane there - it was pretty exciting to drive my boys just them and me...

sooo in other news harvest is pretty much done - we got the last grapes in last week - Riesling!! yes white wine - came via our buddy Matt who delivered it in yet another cool winery truck : ) should be some great Riesling!! more on that as it progresses!!






thank goodness Brian got his first two days 'off' this week so of course he moved animal housing and generally worked around the farm... it's nice to see him and I really look forward to things getting back to norma (whatever that is) around here --

Starting on Tuesday where lucky enough to have two woofer's Elexis and Jaxon who are working there way down the west coast came to work on Big Table farm for 5 dyas - they've brought great energy and have really helped us get through lots of fall chores... like harvesting the rest of the fall potatoes before the rain really starts in full swing...





there is still a bit of canning to do but the lion's share is DONE!!!



The pigs are growing and happy and even better today thanks to Gales Medow farm bringing over 100's of #'s of pumkins gleaned from there place - the pigs where very excited for them! : )





this last photo is of the elk - about a mile form our place... pretty magical : )
