It has been two whole weeks since I finished pruning in Vinoland, but today, finally, I noticed budbreak in the Cabernet Sauvignon vines. It's not that budbreak is behind this year, it's just that I have a very definite schedule of my own this spring. The vines are all behaving well. Well, perhaps all except the Orange Muscat vines which have about 8-9 inches of growth already - the little whippersnappers! Growing season 2017 is definitely upon us.
