Some rainfall this week - still not enough to make a difference to the season. The rain that we have had was just enough to green everything up again, but still not enough to replenish our subsoil moistures.

This week in the vineyard :
We have now finished mowing our covercrops down, some of it has now been done a second time. The forcast is for some very cold nights coming up this week, so we are keeping our covercrops as short as possible. We have just had a full moon which also increases our risk of frost damage. This weeks picture shows the same view as last week but the covercrop has now been mowed.
