After a morning of low clouds and cold wind, we finally got the rain we’ve been waiting for!

The winery has a metal roof, so it was pretty obvious from the sound when the rain started falling in earnest.

This is a very welcome development, even though it interrupts our pruning. The rain will give our cover crops a much needed boost, not to mention recharging the water table that our well draws from.  Since the rains didn’t actually start until the early afternoon, we were able to make a little bit more progress pruning the Foxtrot block.

If you look closely in the upper right hand corner, you can see the little section that still needs to be pruned.

Now we’ll begin working indoors a little bit more. Be sure to check back to follow what’s going on.
