It's past five on Friday and we are all still running around. Only one week left before our family preview event. Laura and I have been riding around the county picking up furniture and decorations for the tasting room. Some things need to be dusted off a little bit but with a little creativity we'll put together some nice displays.
Landscaping is almost finished, and it looks awesome! Plus, we've put up our new signs, so now there's no excuse for not being able to find us!
Our point of sale system arrived this week too. I ran the first credit card sale through this afternoon and everything seems to be working smoothly!
Joe continued to plant corn most of the week, although a reporter brought him inside for a bit this morning. He has run Lazy Day Farms for more than 35 years, so even the excitement of the winery won't distract him from his duties there.
Thanks to Janet and Nellie for taking care of the grapes- they have been in the vineyard pruning all week and the vines are looking healthy and strong.
We received 1100 gallons of juice on Monday which we'll start fermentation on soon. It would be terrible to run out of wine in the middle of the summer, plus we don't want the tanks to sit empty for long!
I'm surely forgetting something but we'll have to wait til next week. Have a great weekend!
