Growing Grapes For Wine

By | October 10, 2016

Hi guys, I’m Cammie, and welcome to my YouTubechannel! Since this is my first ever tutorial I figured before we even get into makeup let’sgo to the base of it all and talk about skin care. so I’m a very firm believer in if youstart with a good base then you won’t have to do so much work when you do your makeupand hair or anything really in life. If you prepare more you won’t have to primp so much!Skin care is extra important to me because unfortunately I struggled a lot with acne.Growing up I developed blemishes and breakouts when I was going through puberty, like mostpeople out there. So I didn’t really think much of it. Just used products, tried to getrid of it. But once I started to finish high school

and go into college and stopped goingthrough puberty when I thought it would clear up and it didn’t kinda started to freak outa little bit. Having this acne that I couldn’t get rid of caused me a lot of stress and thenthe stress intern caused more acne. So I felt like I was stuck in this never ending cycleand there was no way out of it. I tried absolutely everything, from Proactive to Murad to…honestlyany product you can think of, I tried them all! And most of these products say that it’sgoing to get worse before it gets better so I stuck to them. I would use them for at leasta month, if not more, and my acne would get worse but then it would never get better.So each product I used made it worse and worse and worse.

I actually started developing thesecystic pimples, and if you don’t know what those are, they’re these really really nastypimples that don’t even have a head, so you can’t pop them! And if you’ve ever had a cysticpimple and tried to pick it, you know that when you do they get bigger. I eventuallydecided to give in and realized I was not going to be able to fix the problem alone,or so I thought. So I went to a dermatologist, she sat across the room from me, at leastfive or six feet away didn’t even come close to my skin, talked to me for maybe two minutesand then prescribed this incredibly harsh acne product gel that I was supposed to putall over my face and sleep in. All this did

was insanely dry my skin out. Like I wouldwake up the next day and it looked like I just had a bad burn. My skin was pealing andugh it was so gross! This was really discouraging. I thought going to a dermatologist was goingto solve all my problems and it only made them worse. I just kind of lost all hope andthought great I’m stuck with this awful skin, and now it’s dry. So, I don’t even know howI had pimples and dry skin like is that even possible? That doesn’t make any sense. It’slike, I don’t know. It’s crazy but it happened. After this long ordeal of trying productsout, I found out that I was allergic to chemicals that are commonly in like all acne products.The chemicals I’m allergic to are benzoyl

peroxide and salicylic acid, or somethinglike that. I don’t even know how to say it but whatever if I see it I steer clear fromit. So since I have this allergy it makes my skin freak out. So instead of doing thejob of drying out the pimples individually it dies out my whole skin, breaks me out ina rash and just makes a horrible situation. It turns out this is actually a really commonallergy even though I can’t believe I had never heard of it before and nobody talkedabout it. And a lot of people who suffer from it keep using products like I did and maketheir skin worse and just have no idea that they’re allergic to the chemical. After findingthis out I was kind of happy because I could

stop using products that had the chemicalin it but I was also kind of discouraged because now how would I ever get rid of my acne? Butluckily after using any products that had the two chemicals in them my skin did startto kind of clear up. I had acne spots in areas but it was much much better than it was. Atthis point a lot of the stuff where my cystic pimples were, more on my cheeks and my chin,went away but I still had a lot of just typically pimples all on my forehead and like on thesides of nose and then a lot of blackheads everywhere. I’ll insert pictures that I foundthat kind of show my acne. Honestly I searched forever through my computer, through old Facebookpictures, and they’re hard to find cause I

Home Vineyard Growing Wine Grapes at Home

Hello and welcome to my home vineyard Let’s get a lay of the land. As you can see thisis just a simple side yard it’s got about 55 feet of space long twentysix feet of space wide we elected to go with twenty twofoot long rows northsouth facing uh… the rows are spaced about five feet apartto give us ample space for the vines to grow

and for us to manage and walk through we are planting about four plants per row to give it plenty of space to spread out and grow for the rows, we used uh… just simple fenceposts these are eightfoot fence post sunk about threefeet deep we tried to go about two feet deep butit wasn’t uh… it just simply wasn’t stable enough so we went that extra foot for stability

the wire is fourteen gauge wire uh… we elected to go with the verticaltrellising partly because it was easier and partlybecause uh… the north south facing rows, it allow it to get sun at all hours of the day uh… we have a drip irrigation linesran along the bottom we will be using half gallon per hour drips two per plant that allows us to adjust the water

water flow and manage the irrigation a littleeasier than if we used a heavier flow we’ll actually be planting syrah grapes because we tend to be in a warmer, drier climateduring the summer doing something like pinot noirwould require greater cooler temperatures… that sort of thing that’s our vineyard. We’ll be planting the grapes nextweek and we’ll come back then.
