The Birth of a Vineyard - Part One

Our neighbor Fern & her Dad, Les, dug the new irrigation ditch for us. Keith was very happy not to have to do that himself!

The PVC pipe lays parallel with the old irrigation line.

Each riser is 9 feet apart. There are two lines, with a filter system for each line.With this system we will be able to turn on any or all of the lines for the whole 3 acres of vineyard.

Each riser has a Tee that will connect the black drip hose that runs above the ground.

Keith is right now out in the Vineyard covering up the Ditch. Soon we will roll out the drip line and mark the rows with string to indicate where we dig the holes for the vines.
