The grapevine has not done well this year – well, that’s true; the vine itself has done very well, with many new shoots that needed pruning and several hundred tiny grapes formed. My complaint is with the size of the grapes, they are all far too small to be useful for anything. In fairness this is only the vine’s third year. I’ll see how it does next year and see what feeding and pruning treatments I need to give it.
No chateau-shed wine this year.
