An Old Netting Machine

Abandoned Net Pulling MachineI wonder how difficult it was to put the nets on in the vineyards before hydraulics and machinery came along? One thing for sure, even with the introduction of automation, there’s still a lot of manual labour involved as far as pulling the nets are concerned, especially if the nets are tight and the number of rows that need covering is big. My sore fingers and hands are a reflection of how crude this method really is after 2 weeks of the same mind-numbing task. Someone needs to find a better way in addressing those bloody annoying grape-pecking birds sooner rather than later! Did I hear the re-introduction of DDT? LOL!
