7/9/16 – Finally a professional

An uplifting feeling. Not that things didn’t get better from time to time and I got the routine of filling the machine, firing it up, winding it up and marching off. The pesticides are mixed in a 10 liter canister, the number of spray fillings is then calculated, and then the measured liters are simply […]

06/24/16 – When the gas runs out…

Were outside again today. With the homeopathic amounts of pesticides I need for my 30 ares and my husband’s words: “And that helps…?” – When I look at the result so far, I have to say: “Yes!” At first you think you’ve miscalculated, then you soon realize that’s not the case, but you’re still surprised, but […]

06/17/16 – degrees still…

Less than 8 days later and I’m already here again. In the vines for spraying. Then come the questions from family and friends: “What? Yet again?” I actually had it in my head that you have to go out about every 10-12 days, but I have learned that this year is extreme. A lot of people haven’t experienced it […]

06/11/16 – Weatherman

I’m half a meteorologist now. I have all the weather forecasts at a glance and could soon provide hour-by-hour information on when it will rain and how much. It’s unbelievable how quickly one develops into an expert in some subjects. I’m very excited. So I already knew on Friday that only Saturday morning would be suitable […]

Summary – the year 2018, 2nd half in the vines

The young plant has grown very well despite the dry summer. No watering or pampering programs were needed to keep the little ones growing. In fact, it was noticeable that the two newly planted varieties Souvignier gris and Johanniter did differently. While the Johanniter literally outgrew itself and the last wire at a height of almost […]

April 27, 2018 – Moved in

First a few facts: 103 posts, 34 end posts, 590 plant sticks, 34 anchors that wanted to go 60 cm into the ground and 3.5 km of wire 7 they were. 7 helpers + a tractor (and actually an anchor driver – more on that later) At this point I would like to express my thanks […]

03/26/2018 – Master of calculations

Today I mutated into a calculator. Material order is pending for the wire frame of the plant. It must or should be this year. After much back and forth, discussing and talking shop with colleagues, it is now certain. No stitching wires. I opted for hail protection nets, so there are no double wires in the middle, and I […]

03/08/2018 – O’spatet is!

After the still wonderful 35-year-old Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir had been cleared, we had brought the vines out of the vineyard in an adventurous way, the spading machine could start and start spading.  Yes, I could never really imagine anything under the machine until you see it. Actually, you could think you are on a […]
