It's spring and the pruning has begun! Last week my son Darin and I
spent a couple of days pruning and we are about half done. All of the
Frontenac Gris are pruned and only a few of the Marquette's are
left. Both varieties survived another winter in good shape and we
lost less than 1%. Darin and I also pruned the Frontenac Gris in
the gofer vineyard and also started on the King of the North.
who has lived in the Wine Country of Oregon for the past 14 years was a
fast learner when it came to spur pruning but had a challenge when it
came to cane pruning. Below is an image that details the difference in spur & cane pruning.
So the call is out....if anyone would like to
learn the art of pruning grape vines, give me a call.
