This is a very exciting time of year. The grape vine buds are just beginning to break open which means the new leaf growth is about to begin and from there the shoots will begin to grow. That is the beginning of the canopy.
The weather is being very cooperative and the new buds are safe. The winter was warmer than normal and spring has been warmer and dryer. We are a couple of weeks ahead of average compared to the last two years that were three to four weeks behind.
A new beginning.
