hardly a cloud in the sky
 A beautiful blue sky day in Canterbury today. Warm, with hardly a cloud to be seen. The soil temperature is on the rise, grass and weeds are growing again and its lighter at both ends of the day. It can only mean one thing, Spring is on the way and with it, budburst. Usually around mid September for our Waipara vineyards to early October in Central Otago.  Its also been a wetter winter than usual so we will be glad to see the back of it. Pruning is nearly complete and then it will be on to our next battle, the evil that is spring frosts.
