Wet Feet??

Who likes wet feet?
Not me and most definitely not the vines.
When we had all that snow...I believe 75 inches here at Corkys Farm this winter...although it was quite a bit, the snow acts as an insulator to the dormant vines. Moisture is gradually seeping into the ground as the snow melts, which is good. And the melting can take several weeks so not all at once!
However, with all this rain, that is not good. We had roughly 4 inches fall in two days and that just creates run offs & puddles, which is too much moisture at one time. Now we will be having some nice sunny days, so that is great and will help the drying out.
Wet winters & dry summers is what we vines love!
