Here we are in Ladoix,
Ladoix Le Cloud…
As you can see the leaves are very healthy.
Not a speck of mildew, they are beautiful!
It’s growing fast
because the soil is saturated with water,
we had some hot spells in May,
so in two weeks it grew more
than it usually does for the whole month.
I raised the wires again,
Usually I do this around June 15th.
And as you can see…
there’s a good bunch of grapes here,
flowering is past,
I haven’t finished de-budding
because I do it twice.
In my opinion…
but we will still need to remove
more of the grapes given the quantity.
Look here: 1, 2, 3 , 4, 5, 6,…
there must be 12, 13, maybe even 15!
But I’ll manage that next time.
There is no sign of disease!
but let me touch wood.
No sign of any disease.
We’re on the right track!
If you don’t mind, I’m no actor…
OK, I’ve got to keep going!
Damn cicadas! This year It’s incredible,
they fly in our faces
when we are topping the shoots!
