Everything is greening up in the vineyards. Perhaps we won’t have any more freezing weather or hail to hurt the vines, but we might. Growing grapes on the High Plains is an adventurous endeavor.
We practice delaying pruning as much as we can, so that we don’t wake up the vines too early in the spring. Some years the buds just break out earlier than usual because of the weather conditions and temperatures. This year the vines are almost three weeks ahead of their normal growth. That means that harvest may begin in July which is early for us. Mid-August is closer to when the fruit in our vineyards is usually beginning to be ready for harvest.
