Pruning complete! Spring cleaning and vine growth at Dulcius

Spring at Dulcius is about watching wooly grape buds transform into bright green leaves and cleaning up the big mess we made by pruning. Also, Austin and Kyaw Naing have discovered a new, absolutely gorgeous, electric pink variety of Captivator grape. Austin has made several cuttings of this grape to start new plants. 

 Each one of these canes (sticks) was pruned by hand. This is only a mere fraction of what we need to clean up!

 On April 26, Marquettes were beyond wooly bud stage (E-L # 3 for all you grape nerds out there!) and had burst out 4-5 tender green leaves on each shoot (E-L # 11-12).
