DW and I took a nice walk along the Santa Rosa Creek trail today. Spring is happening. Mustard flowers are beginning to appear between the rows of the sleeping vines.
Another grape grower has gotten around to mowing between the rows.
I find it scandalous that I can find grapes for sale in grocery stores in February right here in California wine country when the plant world is shouting, "Look!! No grapes!!"
The grapes for sale here, now, traveled from somewhere very far away, like Chile. If I had to walk to the vineyard those grapes grew in, why, it might take me eight or ten years to get there!
Cesar Chavez became famous for leading boycotts of grapes grown by poorly paid farm workers. I certainly shall continue to boycott businesses that make grapes go to such lengths.
