Wow! My buds are just starting to swell. I hope you don't get a hard freeze!

After temps in the 70s last week we woke up to wind and snow this morning. Looks like it will be freezing every day this week. So far my buds have not swelled. So I think I'm safe.

We had frost Saturday morning and looks like the temps will remain in mid 50's for the next 10 days. Here was a shot from Saturday morning. Need to get my herbicide sprayed soon

Good looking rows. Buds look about like mine. I think we are safe from a hard freeze, but it is snowing up at The Ridge. That is ~6,000 ft while my vineyard is at 1,400. Hopefully the cold will stay up there.

So are buds that have swelled like that still protected from a light frost?

In my experience a light frost is usually ok, particularly if it is late Near sunrise and not too long. Once the leaf starts to unferle it is susceptible. Sprinklers can help at that point.
