This Week in the Vineyard

The bud is still tight. Bloom will not occur until April.

This week has proven to be another strange one. It has been raining almost incessantly. In the last 7 days Mother Nature has blessed us with 2.96 inches of rain (already over half of what the average rain fall is for the month of March). It also snowed early Monday morning, once again; however, once again, it melted within a few hours. There are early signs of spring, such as daffodils, popping up along the drive to the vineyard. It's hard to believe spring is in less than two weeks!

Eerie, low-drifting clouds.
