Homedale project

As those of our chapter know, grapes and other fruit for winemaking has been a scavenger hunt/gleaning exercise for some years, with our dear Gayle Boyer the chief steward of the process. We've long talked of planting some of our own...

So today the call came from Rich Pavelek of Terra Natura in Boise; his pruners had been working for two days, and although they were driven off the vineyard by blowing snow and rain this morning; it was calm enough to glean cuttings!

I went home with Merlot, Malbec (for Bordeaux), Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc & Sauvignon. enough to start a little fun!
