Day 14 – Tink tink tink…tink

DSC_0511The days continue of pounding the stakes. From sun up to sun down the tink tink tink continues through the quiet little valley.

Here are a few things we’ve learned quite well through this process:

1. Rocks are not our friends. There are areas of the field that we now know contain rock beds. Those areas are fully noted with bent stakes, stakes that are about 1′ higher than the rest and need to be dug out and reinstalled. Ughh… rocks just slow life down.

2. The pneumatic t-post driver that is a special ordered from Home Depot and has raving reviews about being used to install vineyards…….WILL NOT fit over our stakes…no matter how hard you try – a 2.5″ driver will not fit over a 3.5″ stake….nope, not at all, no matter how much you want it to! 🙂

3. And….so it seems that we tend to think we are still in our mid 20’s. If you were to look at our to-do list each day, you might say we’re a little out of touch with our physical condition. Turns out…now we see it too! Yes, many weekends of endless physical labor and well…we are now fully convinced…we’re not in our 20’s any more!
