Arctic Vortexes and Survival of the Vines
People keep asking, how dd the grapes do this Winter?
I won’t exactly know until the buds break, but I think we in the County survived OK. We go to such enormous effort each Fall to heap soil over the vines to protect them from Winter. This year, frost came into the ground so abruptly, I almost had to give up. Here’s a blog entry from way back in November that gives you an idea of how our hilling up went this past Fall.
That perseverance will really pay off this year!
