We had a cold snap with the temp dropping around 40 degrees in 24 hours. Bad winds set in, a little snow fell, and the usual Lake Erie, northern Ohio Fall set in.
Looking out the window this morning it appeared the vineyard was empty, not a vine or leaf in sight. I freaked out, thought maybe a wild zombi hoard of deer came through last night and ate everything. (ok, maybe not zombi deer but you get the idea)
I got my shoes on went out, jumped the fence, and started to look around. It was wet, no signs or deer or anything, then I noticed nearly all the leaves have fallen onto the ground. all the vines are there, and don't look half bad.
So i guess (and hoping) this is the time of years most the leaves should fall. Being my first year I am second guessing everything.
