Alain has been off to the vines again to remove more surplus stems. Four rows were finished until rain made him stop. Only if the situation gets close to desperate he would work under the rain. Read more about removal of stems.
The weather has changed to more ordinary temperatures for early May. Around 15 degrees Celsius, more clouds, more wind, more rain. Already next week the warm weather may return though.
We expect to finish the removal of stems in the upper plot and hopefully a good part of the lower plot as well next weekend.
The last pending job at the moment then is to spray herbicides. The weeds grow happily, though not as much as the vine, that has the first priority.
