Mid July 2008

Mid July – We have a grape thief! He is Mr. Possum! What a nasty creature he is! In two nights he and his family have consumed about half our crop! At first, we thought it was birds, but those poor guys were just taking advantage of the hole Mr. Possum had made. A couple of rolls of wire seemed to be enough to keep him out, but putting it up was no small thing. Stanley buried the bottom of the wire with logs, rocks and a ton of dirt.

The grapes that he left look beautiful.

We harvested the few white grapes that Mr. Possum left for us.
