Nets on Marquettes

With the Marquette fruit ripening early, we have already put the nets on the protect them from our feathered friends. So many animals love the shade and protection of the vines and the birds are no different. Every year at springtime we find loads of bird nests hidden among the vines. But right before the harvest, nets have proven the friendliest way to keep the birds out and the grapes on the vine to fully ripen.
