Wine Plants

Finally we now have got wine plants on the balcony.
Thanx to Juan, one of the wine producers up in Escalona. 

We had plans to do this experiment last year, but when we understood we will go to Finland in the summer we put it on hold. However we don´t know yet if we will go to Finland this summer too, or what we are going to do..., but we have got the plants and if they stay alive they must be taken care of wherever we go. That´s for sure!

Juan gave us 3 plants, but one of them is going to move to the balcony of a Swedish couple tomorrow.
Two plants are enough for our balcony so I contacted Scandibar and asked if there is somebody who like to get the third one that we don´t need.

I will take photos of our "wine yard" every now and then so that you can follow the procedure.

Imagine we will sit here on our balcony in the autumn and pick our grapes from our own plants!
Very nice! I really look forward to it!
Brito will, at time, take hints of how to take care of them from Juan, so hopefully they will not die.

Maybe we in the end will end up being wine yard farmers?
No, this is probably only a ´one summer project´ to learn a little bit about the wine production.
But if we one day get a "finca" we will for sure start making our own wine.
