A Napa nest.

Spring is almost at an end. Not that you'd know it from the unusually cool weather we have been having. Summer is just around the corner but temps are at least 10 degrees below normal for this time of year. Perfect temperatures for powdery mildew infection of the vines.
The local avian population may be done with child-rearing for the season (as evidenced by the abandoned nest I found earlier: complete with Vinodog 1 fur-lining of course), but I still have yet to plant and rear my babies!
We did finally manage to get the tree stump out today, hooray! It took myself and Vinomaker, on a tractor each, ganging up on the aforementioned stump until it finally yielded to the power of John Deere and Ford. Phew!
Now, aren't I supposed to be nest hunting for Thud?

Thud: not even ermine?

Weston: Photosynthesis although primarily light driven (and high quality light at that), is also temperature dependant...we don't want to be making European style wines after all!
