By Saturday evening we had the first two rows of trellis posts in the grape patch (only 3 rows to go). It actually went rather quickly, since Jeff had already drilled the holes and sharpened (with a chain saw) the fence posts. With the help of Zach’s tractor – which is still parked at our house, and which is a bit larger than our tractor – Jeff sank the posts by using the hydraulic front bucket. The ground is still soft enough from all the rain, but the grapes have grown a lot, and are touching the bottom of the tractor, so we need to get the rest of posts in this weekend.
