    Anybody have any advice on working with 'tainted' grapes - I have picked of the ones with the rot and as they are now beginning to turn, am planning on making wine with the others - please advise - Shep

    I noticed that 66 day warning just before my last spray!! On the other hand, I have an abundance of black rot - hoping to eke out a little harvest! 'To spray or not to spray - that is the question....'
