What Are These Things?
April 10, 2018
The delivery car drove through the vineyard up to the house. Out jumped a young lady who expressively gestured to the vineyard and with eyes wide and jaw agape asked “WHAT IS THIS PLACE?”. I told her she was standing in a vineyard. Her next question, still gesturing towards the grapevines was, “WHAT ARE THESE THINGS?”. I told her that they were grapevines, and that we would harvest grapes and make wine from them in about a month. It is so gratifying to introduce young people to agriculture. Steve’s idea is that we should have a ring of farms around every town and city. In the most real sense, wouldn’t that be delicious?
