Early impressions of the soil are good

Soil closeupGood soil is forgiving, bad soil is difficult to put right and the wrong soil is wrong forever.  While I had a good idea what was underneath from previous pedology reports, I was still keen to have another look at it after discing.  With Rob Lee, the soil man from Serve-Ag, we dug 3 small pits at different heights around the vineyard and were very happy to find well-drained, friable soils and no clay pans down to 2 or 3 spade depths.  Now a slightly less nervous wait for the soil tests to come back.
