Rioja

with one comment

First weekend in a while without rain.   Lots of weeding around the vegetables.   Thinned out the carrots.   I was going to thin out the beets but one of my deer friends did it for me last night.   Bugger.   Selective eating though so they are thinned out now.   Sprinkled some blood meal on them and the bush beans hoping to deter any more midnight munching.

 

I’ve been enjoying the whites and reds of Rioja this spring and early summer.   Generally all are a blend and the moderate priced ones seem quite good.  Just finished one called the Invisible Man which was quite good for an afternoon.   Another De Padre or DP on the label was enjoyable.

  1. Hey Cam looks great man!!! Well we’re in beautiful PEI and it’s 9:30 am….we’re heading off to see about a cabin in the woods…10.5 acres!! But there’s a few issues….cant put in any offer until after 90 days so PEI-ers have first crack…which is good i guess….also, anything over 5 acres you have to apply to the govt (IRAC) to purchase…. 😦 we’ll see what happens…..have a great day! (eating lobster and hitting all the beaches here! it’s a hard life)
