    I started with 36 Vidal 2 years ago, and the first year, all were killed to the ground, and 16 killed outright. This year, 100% survival of the remaining 20. Go figure.

    I just checked and started pruning them yesterday. The canes are still green, but I have yet to find a bud that is alive. For being a "cold hardy" variety, Vidal seems pretty touchy. I think one is dead to the graft. We'll see how things look as I continue to prune them.
