Fergus Lends A Hand

Fergus the tractor carrying bottles

I make beer and plan to be planting vines this year so that I can also make wine; one of the more arduous tasks is cleaning and moving around bottles. A couple of days ago, I built a kind of three-point-linkage forklift for “Fergus”, my tractor; now moving bottles is oh, so easy!

The large boxes in the picture are the sanitised and capped champagne bottles that I use for my beer; the wine bottles we have saved and collected from the in-laws against the day when I’ve got something to put in them.
