Out of the freezer into the fire
On 4 June it rained a quarter of an inch on our blooming vines and was 65 degrees, now it’s almost 100! Most times when people ask “how is this weather affecting the grapes” I say “not much”, we always get where we need to be. I still know that, but things are a little strange this year. I expect the rain and cool weather to have reduced berry number and we will probably harvest the fruit a bit later.
But still, we will have to see. Let’s do that, let’s wait and see. The one thing we know is that we don’t have much of a choice. Enjoy the ride, it is too good not to.
