I know this looks like a photograph of ordinary dead trees, waiting hopelessly to be made into small pieces of firewood. Pictures can be deceiving.
These logs (the one on the bottom is immense), were left by the logging company on our land. When the trees become this large in length and diameter with a slightly odd shape, they are sometimes left behind by the loggers.
To us, they are nostalgic reminders of what was there before us. We have chosen not to haul them away and they are being set aside for our later use.
These logs will be commissioned into picnic tables for the vineyard with plaques explaining their past origin on this property. Planks will also be made into flooring for the EVENTUAL tasting room.
Yes, it would be so much easier (and cheaper) to go buy some picnic tables and pergo flooring but we feel this will translate into something more meaningful.
We hope you will join us one day for lunch in the vineyard to share memories.
They have pillows for everything, why not Halloween?
