While Dan has been doing this longer and knows more than I do, I am going to argue his statement.
We bought 26 acres last September that needed a lot of work, and then this year planted 810 grapevines and 150 hop plants, with 450 more on their way. We still go out to parties and happy hour, it is just less than we used to. By we I mean my fiancé and me. I would think that if you planted 5000 you wouldn't have a life anymore but as long as you work hard on the days you are working you can still have a social life. Just make sure you have the right tools, and as Dan said some friends to help out
. We've wasted too much time using inadequate equipment.
