Busy Day in the Vineyard

Today Seve and two others came out to de-sucker the vines. They made great progress, finishing all the Viognier and about a quarter of the Cabernet Franc. They'll be back in a day or two to finish up. Three guys x 10 hours each = 2.5 acres suckered.

Also received some replacement vines from Vintage Nurseries today to compensate for some poor stock we received in 2006. Kudos to Dave Haggmark at Vintage for his great customer service and getting us the the replacements!

Once the guys were done in the vineyard I put down the second spray:

Microthiol Special - rate 3 lb per acre
Dithane DF Rainshield Nt - rate 3 lb per acre
