The days are long and hot. The grapes seem to grow so fast you can practically watch them get bigger and you stand among them. It's summer in the vineyards.
I took this photo about 3 weeks ago, intending to write about it then (dream on...). The grapes were just formed. Now they're nearly the size of full-grown grapes.
There are lots of chores in the vineyard at this time of year: spraying, up the vines, cluster thinning. The vines are growing madly around us. Next door, the corn is shoulder-height. And everything around us is green, green, green.
