Tied and tired.

I'm done!  I achieved the goal I set for myself and pruning is finished for 2017.  It took a lot of effort, I ignored a lot of other stuff I could've been doing and my hands are sore, but all the vines are pruned and the canes are tied down.  It feels great to be finished.  Whoo hoo!
Meanwhile, one week later, the Orange Muscat vines seem to be growing before my very eyes. The baby shoots have lengthened about 3 inches in the past six days.  The nascent inflorescence are now clearly visible.  I love this time of year, but I'm just a bit tired to enjoy it right now.

On FB someone listed most of the great women of Cali wine making; I had to add Vinogirl to that list. :)

NHW: Make it? Nah, I just drink the stuff other people have made.

I'm sure it involves your grapes in some capacity!

Thud: The finished product in a glass, hopefully.
