せん定をする前に加温栽培の畑のかん水チューブを変えました。約450 ｍ、1分間に38ｌが出ます。今は１日に1 ,000l水が出ます、夏には3,000lが出ます。今年は12アールの畑の点滴かん水設備を作ります。点滴がん水は省力化で良い栽培方法です。
I only grow Shine Muscat, a Japanese variety. In October I got other table grape varieties, Brazil, Honey Venus, Wink, Ruber Muscat and Black Olympia. Grapes have many flavors, aromas, colors and shapes, because of extensive selective breeding. I like grapes with higher acidity than Shine Muscat, so it was great to taste other grapes.
Just finished cutting the logs. The last one was the biggest, and the most difficult to cut. It is thicker than the chainsaw blade, very heavy and laying on the ground. I made halfway cuts, rolled it over and cut from above again. It was my second day using a chainsaw.
Recently I finished the soil amendment work, and now I have time before the pruning season in December. When we moved into the house last year, there was plenty of firewood for the wood burning stove. Last year the stove was the main heating appliance we used. It is possible to buy seasoned firewood, but it is expensive. So I decided to stock the firewood for next year.
For the job I got the tools, a chainsaw, a splitting maul, a big hammer and wedges. A couple of day ago I bought over 1.5 ton of hard green wood, but it was not cheap. The logs are 170 cm long and up to 40 cm in diameter. It is going to take a while and sweat to split all that wood. But learning how to do it is fun too.
