Veraison and Bird Nets

Its happening 2 weeks later than we expected but the grapes are finally going through their color change known as veraison.  That means we need to protect them from the hungry birds!  This year the weather was perfect for our work crew. 2 days of sunshine and cool temps allowed us to lay down and secure the nets before the hungry birds found what a tasty treat the sweetening grapes make.  Thanks to Lee, Colton, Mach, Loga, Ben, Topher and Elliot for making this years job so easy.  What a great crew.
