A new beginning.

I started pruning today.  The weather was forecast to be beautiful (and at 69 degrees F it turned out to be just that), so I wanted to spend most of my time outdoors.  I couldn't think of a better way to spend my time than pruning Vinoland's small Orange muscat block.  Tying the canes down is always a separate vineyard operation, so the vines look a bit spiky and alien right now.  But with a little bit more attention, an addition of water, sunshine and heat, they will look very much like vintage 2012 wine.

I shall inspect your handiwork closely in July.

The canopy will be full by then - you won't be able to see any mis-prunes I may have made!
