Its been a long time but!

Its been a long time since I updated my blog but a change in work circumstances means instead of working 4 days on and 4 off I am now working Monday to Friday and very often away from home giving me much less free time than before.

Anyway, the grapes in our tunnels are now ripening up, so much so that we have picked the first bunches. They taste superb. Very sweet and just gorgeous striaght off the vine. The variety is "Cardinal" and came from a nursery in Normandy (France). We now have 3 in the tunnels and 2 outside and we may stretch to a row or two in an attempt to grow enough for some wine although that will be a very hit and miss affair knowing our weather.
