Yep, Mother nature is definitly upset about something these past few years. I haven't harvested a reportable crop in 3 years now. The past 3 years have started with with early bud break followed by late freezes knocking out primary buds. This year was made worse with the drought, when the critters came in and cleaned out any crop I might have had in early August. The vines in the old block are still green, but the new block appears to already have gone dormant. Won't realy know much more until next spring.
Even though I don't have anything to harvest this year, there is still a reason to celebrate since it is my tenth anniversary. Family and Friends that have helped over the years will be invided to an afternoon/evening affair at the vineyard the first of October, when it is hoped to be much cooler.
