As pruning season begins it has been a very dry winter so far, with the typical waist-high weeds being a no-show as of mid-January.  We’re providing occasional irrigation cycles to keep the roots alive, with 85 degree afternoons.  It makes for most pleasant pruning weather (hat and sunscreen required), but we’ll see if the vines are fooled into an early mid-winter bud break, which would not be welcome.  Stay tuned.
