Oatley Photo of the Month



Pruning occupies our winter months. Including occasionally in the snow! This is the Madeleine Angevine. Jane prunes them with battery secateurs. That makes it easy to cut the older wood into lengths. The young canes are left on the ground to be mulched in. Older lengths are collected in the barrow and stored in harvest tubs to be used on the open fire in the farmhouse. Benji is playing his proper role as vineyard dog
