Back in the saddle

April is a transistion month in a vineyard, the big pruning is done and the vines are starting to show shoots. Its a time of vigilance for frost, of weed suppression mowing and spraying. We will get our first fungicide and foliar spray in later this month when the shoots are 6-12" and then its time to thin and sucker.

With the our new "Chirala Vineyard" we have the chellenge of mowing extended rows at 72" wire to wire. Teaching your granddaughter to do this is a challenge of itself.
