Vineyard Journal

Grapevines hold many lessons for life...

and I am overwhelmed daily by the beauty of creation and the wisdom of its rhythms. The Vineyard Journal contains my occasional jottings regarding the growth and care of our humble two-acre vineyard. It begins with details of our start-up challenges and takes you through each small victory. I've spared you most of the details of the rain log and spray program, but you will encounter some philosophical sidetrips. My comments also venture toward other crops, flowers and fauna here or nearby and, of course, some off-site wine experiences. Although the names of family and friends are downplayed for their privacy, we treasure every soul who is a part of the vineyard. Follow the links below to each year's journal. us grow.

"I am the vine, ye are the branches. He that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit; for without Me ye can do nothing." - JOHN 15:5
