We have been suffering from spring in January and we have reached the point of concern. This warm weather could hasten bud break before the danger of frost is behind us.
The harvest is over, as well as the Harvest Party! It is time to begin all over again in the vineyard. Our Italian grape harvest went well with cooperation from the weather after the smoke from wildfires and a freak rainstorm.
I am very thankful for the half a crop that I got this year! It could have been less. Really, we have much to be thankful for. I think we all seem to take too many things for granted.
