Our cover crop mix in the vineyard is lapping up the rain, it is in heaven. The beans and peas are hosting nitrogen fixing bacteria on their roots and it is party time!. The warm weather, 60F, not too hot and loads of moisture are ideal conditions. The vines are hungry. Unlike their wine counterparts they need lots of fertility to produce many bunches of sweet grapes. This year will be the first year we will harvest some grapes.
