What We’re Crushing On This Week 12.7.19

  • Early attempts at spraying without a sprayer. Very worth the read and contemplation. (Good Fruit Grower)
  • Phylloxera in Washington state. Big implications for West Texas. (Wine Spectator)
  • It is often said it is easier to sell guns and drugs than wine. Maybe, but not illegally. (London Review of Books)
  • Everything is bigger in Texas. But apparently that means only Texans, and maybe not all Texans, can remember where everything is located. (Texas Monthly)
  • More stories about young talent, like this student at Washington State, in the Texas wine industry would be wonderful. (Washington State College of Ag, Human, and Natural Resource Science)
  • A Hippo bathtub. Oh, how wonderful it would have been to be present during the idea stage of this. “A hippo would be vastly more functional and ergonomic than a giraffe”, she might have said. (Bloomberg)
