I promised myself not to talk about the weather...

I made a promise to myself that I would not talk too much about the weather but this year is proving to be unusual to say the least. Up until the early part of this month the summer has been relatively cool and not without rain but now the thermometer has  shot up into the high 30s. The heat is relentless (even at night time) and unless it cools down we are heading for a very early vintage which will be a challenge for all concerned.
