Hi.

Hiking, backpacking, and camping throughout Southern California and beyond

More prep work for the vines

More prep work for the vines

Montón de la tierra Throughout the week, I have been covering the vines with mounds of soil, which is a bear to bring up onto the slope. Removing rocks from the soil is also a little time consuming. Each vine gets about three buckets of soil, so 75 buckets back on to the slope is taking some time.

As I was covering the vines, I noticed that some of the seemingly dormant or dead-looking rootstock are starting to bud already. These warm San Diego days are bringing the plants back to life.

Once the buds break through the mounds, I am to clear the soil away from each vine and let it grow.

Buds are starting to show
