fall always gets the better of me

Between open studios, the fall wine release and web site updates, finishing up the septic install and now harvest coming on strong - blogging has fallen by the wayside a bit .. but just in case you thought I stopped feeding the animals - I wanted to share some snap shots of the last couple weeks...

Cecelia - I actually got up 'early' to do chores and thought of you so I took these shots!

This is a few weeks back one of our 'new to us' OLD vineyards

so when most folks say "we put in a septic" they don't really mean they where the ones that plotted site plans shuffled paper and permits back and forth with the county, schlepped many hundreds of feet of pipe and drain field liners and actually used a shovel and operated a back hoe for weeks on end... The septic project in finally complete!! wow I think this falls into the category of project you only do once your self.

the little miss clementine took another trip to California a few weeks back and met a new boyfriend we are crossing our fingers for pups right before thanksgiving...

Of course there's lots of fall bounty!

and just in case you thought the pig was having all the fun...

back story --
yesterday at the winery at 6pm as Brian stomped in a bin of grapes with nothing but his undies on the lab delivery guy came in and i think got his whole evening ruined.. he really just didn't want to see Brian 1/2 naked in grapes and didn't really think people still did that .. it was classic!!! all he said after groaning loudly was 'are you serious?'

big thanks to all the folks that came to open studios and took art and wine home!!

also if you aren't on our big table farm mailing list... the wine release letter just went out if you'd like one, e-mail me or just visit the big table farm web site!!

OMG that is a GREAT story...are you serious? And the gloves shot? ..looks exactly like you buried something. You sure did. An old farmer once stood next to me looking at the pond my friend Keith had just dug by hand because he did not want a big digger in his woods. The old gentleman shook his head and said, "Wisdom is wasted on the old; energy is wasted on the young." May it be exactly that, a once in a lifetime.
