Still coming down.......

Front has moved out and this is the trailing wrap around moisture. Holding at 38. Tomorrows low is supposed to be 5-7 degrees warmer than today. Springtime in the Rockies

So on Saturday morning whilst we were in CO it touched 32 for a short period of time. I left everything out as the forecast was for a warmer low than on Friday. Pots all look great but the tomato plants are complete toast and some vine damage but so weird the hit and miss even out in the wine garden away from the warmth of the house and patio. Could be worse I spose.

Realized I haven't posted any updates since early Spring. The rest of May was uneventful weather wise and June was HOT and DRY. Grapes are loving the heat and the water I have been pouring on. We dodged a BIG bullet last weekend as we had afternoon thunderstorms develop. As I have said many times. It never just rains in these parts. There always has to be DRAMA associated with rain. That drama manifest it self in the form of hail quite often. It hailed big time up in town which is about 9 miles away. We lucked out as the storms seemed to skirt around me. I watched the radar map on my phone for an hour and huge swaths of magenta were all around us. Good news is no crop damaging hail, bad news is not much rain.......

Here is what I deal with every Summer........




Hit the vines yesterday with a little more fertilizer.

You seem to have a lot of 'empty spots' where grapes should be. Is that a result of your late frost, or just typical of the Marquette?
