My first harvest


Saturday morning was quite different from my usual carefree days. Everybody got up early and went to the vineyard. There was a crew of guys and a tractor driver and they were picking the grapes that they call Sauvignon Blanc. Wow, were they sweet! Bean (Melissa's dog) my mom (Holly) and my dad (Charlie) all went with me to be part of the harvest. It had rained a little bit in the night so all of the dust had settled and there was a bit of rain and lightning early in the day. Very cool. Then the grapes came in and they started all the crush equipment and the grapes were dropped into the press. I was exhausted by then and decided to lay down in a flower bed. My mom chose to  snooze on the crush pad.
