We finished netting all of the grapes yesterday. It's always a good feeling when the nets are all finally on. At this point in the season we take a rest from canopy management. Fungicide spraying usually slows by this time too. Now we need to hope for good weather until harvest.
Veraison on Marquette is complete, frontenac and foch should be complete soon. Lacrescent, prairie star and st pepin are further along than I would have thought given the late start. If weather remains good, we should have an excellent harvest. (currently scheduled for September 28)
