Herbicide

So after yesterday's ridiculous manual weeding fiasco, coupled with last night's medical drama, I was hopeful that today was going to be a smoother ride! In fact it was. Started the day off by re-installing the electrical connections for the sprayer (you'll recall they caught on fire a few weeks ago...) That took about an hour, then I got the sprayer loaded up with the Rely mixture (4 quarts per acre) and spent the next 3 hours riding around the vineyard. The total spray job takes three tanks (25 gallons) but I think I covered it pretty well. I know I hit a few vines, so I'm curious to see the effects of the Rely on the leaves - will they drop completely or just wither a bit? Should know next weekend!
