May 1st and things are a bit behind this year with the weather. We usually have some small early leaves comming out on the trees last 2 weeks of April but just starting to see that now.
We have finished the 1st round of pruning to get rid of most of last years growth. But we still leave double the bud count just in case there is a late spring frost (remembering last year). Lots of bleeding from the vine as soon as you prune it.
Late May, we'll do a second prune to adjust bud count for proper crop load and do another adjustment to cluster prune in early July.
We also have some Marquette to plant and we will get those in the ground in the next few days.
