Too Much Water

This picture was taken last Thursday down by the marina in Ste. Genevieve. The flood gate is closed, and on this side of the gate, there is water everywhere, and on the other side things are normal. I guess after 1993 our little town is better prepared.
The Mississippi River is supposed to crest in St. Louis today. Let's pray for no more levy breaks, and a normal subsiding of the water.

We're back from vacation with loads to do today, and I'm not just talking laundry. Vines are being sprayed, grow tubes are being put on, unleaded gas is being delivered (that's a blow to the pocketbook) and wine is being racked. This little bunch sure did change while we were gone. Farm life is not put on hold until you return.

A day early

Here's the Norton bunch a day early this week because we head to the beach tonight. It's so hard to get away this time of year, but we can't go when the grapes are ripe, so we go while they are growing. This is the near end of bloom for this cute little Norton bunch. I'll be back in two Mondays.

New Links

I wanted to point you in the direction of a couple different websites. The first one is Norton Says. On Norton Says you can plan a trip to Missouri wineries, and find out more about the Norton grape and wine made out of Norton grapes.

The other link is to Missouri Wine Girl blog. Danene works for the wine and grape board that I am a member of, and she has lots of say about Missouri wines.

Also, if you are on facebook, become a fan of Norton Says.

Happy Clicking!
