“Hey, Aubie!  Wouldja take a look at this?  I got these little green bugs on my wheat.”   I heard farmers from all around the area asking my Granddad — Aubie Delmus  (no kidding) these kinds of questions.  I knew, without a doubt, that my Granddad was Somebody, because he knew the answers to every farming question these guys came up with.

So when Rafa pointed to the rosebushes in his vineyard and said “You know what these are for?”  I knew a story was coming.  It’s a little peek into the tips and tricks of a passionate farmer.  I love stuff like this.  Check it out – and then if you have a cool gardening (or farming) tip — leave it in the comments.
