2015 Fruit Shoot Photo Contest Winners
Emory Walton and the judges of the crfg development fund have done it again. Picking
winners is hard enough, but sorting through a blizzard of beautiful digital images and trying
to decide which ones are outstanding must take a special kind of judgment and patience.
 
Maintaining Your Home Vineyard
In a follow-up to his informative article in the last issue about establishing a home vineyard,
George Tyson offers indispensable advice based on experience and observation over many
growing seasons. In a fitting conclusion he shows us the fun of winemaking and his man cave.

interesting fruit botanically named Sideroxylon celastrinum, which gives no hint of its flavor.
