March 2014 Update

Sunday, March 16th, 2014

Hi to all,

Sorry we haven’t updated you all with our goings on for the last wee bit, we have been busy getting all our summer pruning done and going to festivals, shows and fetes.  Last weekend we had a good day at the Mayfield A& P Show and this weekend we were kept busy at the Methven A & P show then the Tekapo fete.  It was lovely to meet some new faces as well as our regular clientele.

The verasion has happened on the fruit and we now got all the vines covered with the nets to stop the birds from getting this year’s crop.  We had a bit of a freak wind move some of the nets over which meant we had to take them off and re-cover them.  There is still a bit of mending to be done.  Luckily we did have the nets on and secure before the 1 in 100 year storm hit so that was a blessing.  Now we are hoping for some nice hot days with cool evenings to get the fruit ripe enough for us to pick.

We hope to see you all soon at our cellar door.
