Our vineyard project was moving along beautifully on February 20th, 2015, prior to the great rains we have received since then in the Cedar Creek Lake area of East Texas with the placement of trellises for our future vineyard. A neighbor came into the property “Curiousity Seeking” that afternoon. He is the owner of ten acres in the area.
The neighbor’s comment on entering our open security gate was, “The community is in an uproar as to what is going on here!” I guess he and his friends never seen the beginnings of a vineyard before Lol. When it comes to bottled wine, have no doubt they never drank any wine above “Thunderbird.”
Another great lesson learned, “the old neighbor helping neighbors is a thing of the past in the country these days.” If you fall asleep at the wheel you will quickly find your wallet weighing less with advice from these folks!
