The vines are bursting forth

Summer weather this weekend with the thermometer rising to 28oC (it is snowing again in England). I have a team out in the vineyard picking up stone.

The vines are bursting forth but this is a dangerous time when hail or a spring frost can inflict withering damage on the tender shoots.  More worryingly we still haven’t had any substantial rain this year.  I feel myself turning into a seasoned farmer with my complaints about the weather.
