Viticulture: While wooden posts are available get orders in for next year. Fast approaching flowering critical for choice of fungicides for downy and powdery mildew.

Joke of the Month

A Texan farmer goes to Australia for a vacation and while he's there he meets an Aussie farmer.
They get talking and the Aussie farmer shows off his big wheat field.
The Texan is unimpressed and says, "We have wheat fields that are at least twice as large as that."
They walk around the ranch a little more, and then the Aussie shows off his herd of cattle.
The Texan is again unimpressed and says, "We have longhorns that are at least twice as large as your cows."
They carry on walking around the ranch when the Texan sees a group of kangaroos hopping through the field.
He asks the Aussie, "And what are those?"
The Aussie replies, "Don't you have any grasshoppers in Texas?"
