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.
The Sci Guys Science at Home SE2 EP4 Red Cabbage pH Indicator Acid Base Indicator
Today on Sci Guys acidbase indicators lt;lt;Intro musicgt;gt; welcome to sci guys I'm Ryan and I'm Adam and today we're going to be making an acidbase indicator using red cabbage. purple cabbage! Its called red cabbage.It's purple. It's name is red cabbage. purple cabbage. An acidbase indicator isa solution that changes color in the presence of an acid or base
it can be a sudden change at aspecific pH or a gradual change through many colours as the pH changes The equipment you need for thisexperiment includes a couple of glasses, a blender, coffee filters, and a funnel. We're also going to need a few ingredients from the fridge and pantry. The items we need from the pantry are baking soda, vinegar, and distilled water. The ingredients we need from the fridge include
lemon juice and a red cabbage. The last two items we need are ammoniaand antacid taps. The safety equipment we're gonna needtoday includes gloves, goggles, and an apron or lab coat to protect from spills or splashes. Also, since we're dealing with hot water and sharp objects make sure you have adult supervision. So the first step for our experiments is to add four cups of warm distilled water to our blender. Next we add two red cabbage leaves. Put the lid onsecurely.
Holding the lid and give it a few pulses. lt;lt;Blender Soundsgt;gt; The second step in our experiment isto take your coffee filter and your funnel and place the coffee filter inside thefunnel. This will help prevent any small pieces of cabbage from gettinginto our solution. Place your funnel and coffee filter over top of another container and pour your blended solution through the coffee filter. Make sure totake any large pieces of cabbage out before you start this filtrationprocess.
The third step is to take your cabbage solution and pour it into several different glasses.Make sure to leave enough room for the rest of the liquid we will be adding to test for pH. The first solution we're gonna test isammonia. When ammonia is added it turns our solution a green colour. Which indicates that it's a strong base. The second solution we're gonna mix withthe indicator is a little bit of distilled water mixed with baking soda.
The baking soda turns the indicator bluewhich tells us that it's a weak base. The next solution we gonna add to ourindicator is tap water. Tap water turns our solution a very slightblue color but it still looks like a shade ofpurple. This tells us that the tap water that we tested is slightly basic butclose to neutral. The fourth item up for testing are antacidtabs. When we add a tablet or indicator carbon dioxide is produced and becausecarbon dioxide is acidic the colour changes to maroon. This is notthe end for color change.
Wegmans Organic Farm Grapes
These Worden grapes look great. They're producing really nice clusters. They do. They have awesome color. Do you think they are ready to harvesté I think so. Bill and I are here in our vineyard, part of our orchard and Bill is our team leader here at the orchard. Hello.
We just purchased this property last year so it's something very new to us. We've been growing vegetables for the past 8 years and this is our first year at starting to understand organic fruit production. We have 25 different varieties of table grapes here of seeded and seedless varieties. These vines are 30 years old,
so there's a lot of history behind these vines. We're trying to experiment with different seedless table grape varieties to see which ones work best and be able to expand on them in the future. This is part of our overall mission here at the Wegmans Farm to learn how to grow organic fruits and vegetables and pass that information on to other growers
so we can source more local organic produce near our stores. Organic produce is available in season at all of our stores from the Wegmans Organic Farm and from our regional organic partner farms.
