Wow! April was so busy! The pruning is pretty much done. We participated in the Missouri Food and Wine Festival at Chateau on the Lake in Branson, Mo. We also participated in Maifest at OOVVDA Winery in Springfield, Mo. We'll be at Le Cave Winery in Billings, Mo and at Pierce City Mo's ArtsFest in June. Details coming soon!
The vineyard looks so lush and thriving. We could do with a bit more rain, but otherwise, all is going very well. The grapes bloomed on schedule and the berries should be setting soon. Yes, grapes do have flowers. It is not something most folks get to see.
Nathan and John took some of their wares to Bakersville for the Spring Garden Festival. John sold a lot of his metal work. He is completely out of his treble clef dinner bells. It was wonderful to meet so may people who are interested in buying locally produced good. John and Nathan demonstrated metal working using John's portable forge. It was great!
Hope to see you soon!
