Still, yet another week later.

With 3.5 inches of shoot growth and two cute little flower clusters, the Orange Muscat vines are well on their happy, little, fruit-making journey.  Next weekend they will need to be sulphured, but unfortunately it is forecast to rain, beginning Wednesday, so I don't know how that's going to work. On a more positive note though, rain means no frost, which for the vines means no frost damage.  Of course, being this far along in shoot growth the vines are now producing sugar which acts as a natural anti-freeze.
And that concludes my mini series of the progress of the Orange Muscat budbreak.

Tomasso: Yes, even if they are a little precocious.

NHW: All new shoots are fresh and healthy looking, the Orange Muscat especially so.
