Baby, it's cold out there.

Northern Indiana experienced a frosty night last week. We at Dulcius took some precautions creating giant smudge pots to create frost-fighting smoke. Scott and Austin stayed up all night feeding the fires and generally warming up the low areas of the vineyard with their positive attitudes! Some of the vines did experience frost damage, especially our early to bud and burst Marquettes (see April's post below).

 Our Marquettes felt some of the frost on that early May morning.
