We are busy getting ready. Between ordering supplies, coordinating with growers, and serving our customers I’ve had a chance to snap a few pics of Jeff as he cleans up the harvest bins. Each of these bins will hold about 1 ton of grapes.
Here you see a dirty bin….this is what they look like after sitting out in our field for a year:
And here is Jeff as he prepares to tip the bin over and get inside to clean. Jeff will be very careful NOT to hit his poor nose as he works on these bins:
Well, despite a painful nose, Jeff is happily working these bins over:
And finally they come clean:
One of our growers will be coming by on Friday to pick up these squeaky clean puppies and use them this weekend. We will be processing early on Sunday, and consider this your invitation to come on by and watch the craziness of our first harvest of 2006! Cheers everyone!
