OK, did I miss spring ? It seems that way with the
many cold rainy days! The good news is the forecast for a week for
sunshine with temperatures in the 60's and 70's.
Our vines will be budding a little later this year but sometimes
that not bad because the chance of a frost is less as we start the end
of May. The vineyard is now all pruned and buds are starting to swell
and soon will open.
I finished spraying Roundup in the rows and
spraying around the Tasting Room with 2-4-D for dandelions. For the
summer we will switch to a product called Rely. It's safe and won't
hurt the vines. With the rainy weather the grass is growing fast I
try and wait and let the grass grow so when we mow we throw all the
grass clippings is the row.
We have been chosen to be featured in the Farm and Ranch Guide in
the Producer Progress Report every two weeks throughout the year. So
check it out. We will try and get it up on the website.
we open the tasting room on Memorial Weekend. Enjoy the Sunshine!
