Hot weather makes the berries grow

Last week's hot weather was pumping the berries :-) they are growing at a visible rate :-) All are very healthy, there is not much disease pressure. Paul just sprayed them again yesterday, ahead of the predicted rain. He didn't have to spray for more than 30 days :-) Hopefully one more spray will be enough this year, he'll do it before we net them next month.
He finished cutting the tops of, the vineyard is looking picture perfect :-)) It's a pleasure to walk the rows.
He's done the pad for the new shed where he'll move the woodworking workshop and all the timber currently stashed under the House. Note, that I'll call the cellardoor building The House from now on :-)) I'm itching in my skin to move up there ASAP :-) While digging dirt from the side of the hill to fill up the pad's location, he had a 'sparkling' idea :-))...this hole will be my vegetable cellar! Properly underground. For the spuds, carrots, cabbages, apples, pears...
The sun shines, the Plum Pond finally seems to hold its water, , the Redhot Pokers are visited by the honey-eaters, the Gallinula Mortierii (native hens) had their morning bath and we have visitors to the cellardoor daily now :-)
All is well at St Imre!
