Here are some pictures of a mechanical pre-pruning machine that Steve Borra from Borra Vineyards sent to me.
He was pre-pruning the Cabernet Sauvignon. See the long canes before and the short canes that are left after the machine goes through,leaving the short canes for the men to select just the right fruiting cane that is pruned back to a 2 bud spur for this years crop.

THIS IS TOUGH!!!!!


It will drive you nuts!!  Have fun!


The object of the game is to move the red block around without getting hit by the blue blocks or touching the black walls.

If you can go longer than 18 seconds you are phenomenal.  It's been said that the US Air Force uses this for fighter pilots. They are expected to go for at least 2 minutes.

Give it a try but be careful...it is addictive!!
