harvest time

The months of praying for the weather to co-operate, attempting to get the government to co-operate, trying to get the wineries to co-operate and attempting to keep the bugs and the birds away, all come down to this - the harvest.

This is a crazy time of year when you still pray for the weather to co-operate, you still want the co-operation of the government and the wineries and you still need the birds and bugs to stay away. The difference is that now you're also out there for hours at a time getting the "liquid gold" off the vine, into the harvesters, onto the trucks and to the wineries where it's tested for sugar content before being used to make wine.

Yup, a lovely, crazy time of year.
