Round Tower Block Chardonnay http://jackrabbithill.com/news/round-tower-block-chardonnay http://jackrabbithill.com/news/round-tower-block-chardonnay#comments Sun, 22 May 2011 15:41:29 +0000 http://jackrabbithill.com/?p=607

New Round Tower Block Chardonnay cuttings

5/21/11:

Today we potted about 150 chardonnay cuttings taken from the Upper West Side block on Jack Rabbit Hill, a good day to propagate vines as the Moon is in Archer, which means it's a good day to be working on frui

t-bearing plants like grape vines.

Eventually these cuttings will end up in the Round Tower block on Jack Rabbit Hill, a special site planted only in JRH's own native cuttings (rather than plants from another nursery or farm).

As biodynamic farmers, we're always looking for ways to use the farm's own resources instead of bringing in materials from off the farm (for example our own manure and cover crops for fertility rather than imported manure or store bought fertilizers).

So growing our vineyards with our own plant stock instead of buying from a nursery or another vineyard is a slam-dunk!

We now have over 10,000 baby hop plants acclimating to their new home on the north slope of Jack Rabbit Hill. Varieties: Cascade, Chinook, Crystal, Nugget and Northern Brewer.

With the moon in descent beginning in mid-May, we uncovered our 2010 horn manure on the 18th and stirred and sprayed it on the future hopyard over the next few days. Tom Smith of Summit Labs in Ft Collins delivered our very happy baby hop plants on Friday, May 21st. We planted the next week until the last plantlet and it's tiny rootball was in the ground yesterday afternoon.

BD500 Horn Manure dug up May 18, 2010 http://jackrabbithill.com/news/566 http://jackrabbithill.com/news/566#comments Wed, 19 May 2010 14:53:55 +0000 http://jackrabbithill.com/?p=566 viagra soft tablets

orn-manure-unearthed-at-JRH-May-2010-lores1-768×1024.jpg” alt=”" width=”258″ height=”344″ />Horn manure, aka BD 500, is made by filling empty cow horns with fresh manure from Ja

ck Rabbit Hill's own lactating cows, and burying the filled horns in the ground from Sept thru May every year. Stored in horns and buried for the winter, the raw green manure becomes a woodsy-smelling, dark, spongy humus. The humus is then stirred in water for an hour and quickly sprayed in the vineyard, hopyard and pasture.

The horn manure spray stimulates life (fungus, animals and plants!) in the ground, which in turn keep our vines, hops, pasture, and livestock happy! Our 5 horns above can make a year's worth of “compost tea” for our entire farm!
