It looks as if old man winter has finally left. What a mess he left around the farm. It will take some time to clean up after him but I am excited to begin. It was a gorgeous spring day today, so I decided to take a walk through the vineyard. The vines have started to sprout. I will spend many hours walking through the vineyard, pruning, tying up vines, and talking to my vines encouraging them to be the best they can be.
