The difference a drought makes

This was our big blue sky when we first arrived at the vineyard.

No rain and five months later, this is our big brown sky. (And my very cute Mamasan capturing our dry dirt on film.)

We are currently interviewing for rain dancers if anyone is interested.

I broke my own record of solo driving to pick up this beauty: 46.5 hours. I'm hoping to retire my jersey now.

On the road again

Surprise road trip. Twenty-four hundred miles. Boom and cheaters in tow.

Coming to collect an antique cultivator near you.
