Welcome-winter3.jpg Winter comes to the Keisie
By: TB   (2013-06-03)

Winter struck this past weekend in the Keisie Valley. Sustained rain showers scudding eastwards from Cape Town soaked the farm with nearly 50mm of rain over 48 hours and deposited the first snows of the year on the Langeberg mountain range on the valley's south side. All very good for the winter planting of oats and barley - its green haze just starting to appear on the previously dry fields - but pretty cold for animals and people, with temperatures dropping to just above freezing. Fall is also now well and truly under way and the valley is yellow from end to end as the vineyards drop their leaves and settle down for their winter rest.
