Another Rainy Day in Oregon

So we've made it to summer.  It's not cold, just rainy.  I moved herbs and put in new ones a few days ago, so the rain is good.  Everything get's a chance to settle in.  The grape vines are looking great too.  Maybe I'm finally getting the hang of this, grape growing that is.  The leaves have some little bumps on them, but it doesn't seem to affect the fruit ripening, so for now I'm not too concerned about it.  Wendi had the last of our baby goats.  On first check, I thought it was a little girl and was going to call her Lacy, because of her, I mean his markings.  Howard corrected me a couple of days later.  Oops, Lacy, oh mean Lester was just a little on the small side.  I didn't go to far into my research of "milk wine", but have been experimenting with some fudge recipes.  Here's some pix of the garden, (me in the garden, one of my new scented geraniums, and you can see up my two rows of tempranillo, chardonnay is the next row to the left and Marachel Foch to the right).
