|Checking on the new vines|
Our vines are sprouting. The two-year old vines are loaded with little clusters of flower buds along with their leaflets and tendrils. This weather has prompted everything to come to life. It's so encouraging to see. Even the little rondo that didn't do much last year has come to life.
The newly planted chardonnay test vines and solaris expansion vines are sprouting, too. It has been an extraordinary month with very little (no) rain and we have not been watering the vineyard. We have been watering the other gardens, vegetable and flower, daily for the past week. Fortunately, last night, the drought was relived and we are to get plenty of rain today. Let's hope it's enough.
