Rain in May

May 22nd, 2019

I feel compelled to discuss the weather we’ve been having. Rain in May? It doesn’t happen very often, but as you’re likely aware, we got a good soaking recently. It will be interesting to see the results of this rain on the 2019 fruit quality at harvest. I suspect that the abundant water supply in the soil will make the berries down the hill on the valley floor very big this year (not necessarily such a good thing). For me it shouldn’t be much of a problem; my vineyard’s Atlas Peak soil is so rocky that there isn’t much to hold all the rainwater in storage for the plants to use later (a good thing).
