Grape Crush in Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia is in the middle of the grape harvest and crushing grapes is the first part in the winemaking process.

The following little video shows a little bit of what I have been up for the last couple weeks with another week to go. This year’s harvest will be a very good one due to the perfect summer conditions we have had.

Starting to Plant

We started planting on our farm today. Planted a 1000 raspberry canes, not easy work with another thousand to go tomorrow. Planting two varieties; Royalties and Novas.

Next will be and acre and a half of Honeycrisp apples, after that it will be a bit under an acre of blueberries.

Feeling good about my new fruit growing venture and the learning curve is very steep. It’s all good though…
