Every year is a gamble! Twice the last month I've sample pruned canes from each of our grape varieties, and everything's green! For two years we've not had much of a crop, but this year things look really good. There's a good ground cover of snow and spring is warming up gradually. Hopefully no long chinook warming periods. Hopefully no sudden deep freezes.
We prune our grapes later each year, in order to allow as many buds to survive late frosts as possible. With a small vineyard, we can wait until well into April or even May and still get done in time. Cabin fever is in full swing!
