Early harvest

I haven’t written about the vines for a little while, but in this case no news is good news. In fact everything is looking excellent and harvest is likely to be exceptionally early, probably late August. The first photo below was taken on June 16th 2006 while the second was taken today, exactly one year later. Hopefully the difference is clear. In 2006 the vines were in full flower when this year flowering finished 4 weeks ago and the bunches are now almost fully formed.The main danger at this time of year is hail damage. The past two weeks have been very worrying… big thunderstorms wandering around every other evening. So far Morey has been spared, but my nerves are frayed.
