Oswald Vineyard May/June 2014

Here is a look at Oswald Vineyard in May/June 2014!

Oswald Vineyard May/June 2014 - June 2014

A lot has happened in the past few months - we have a new milk cow, took a 5000+ mile trip to Maine (in our 15 passenger van) and have a new vineyard toy imported from France - but, I will tell you more about all that later!

After all the pruning was finished, we had a late freeze on April 15th with 21.7 F temperature. Despite the fact that our vines were budded out and we had 6 inch long shoots, the Lord miraculously protected the vineyard. Thankfully, we had very little damage and Lord willing, we will have a bumper crop.

You can see in the photo below, the grapes blooming.

In May, you can see the vineyard view from on top of the filter house.

If you look back at the first picture, you can see how much growth has occurred in just a month's time!

Now, for the grapes - yes, they are green but thankfully, there are a lot there!!!

Vineyard work is in full swing and I can't wait to tell you about our new vineyard toy!

I hope you enjoyed this post about Oswald Vineyard in May/June of 2014. It sure has been a joyous year so far!
