Hot, Hot Hot

Whew, It is hot.
We always get the question; is the hot weather hard on the grape vines?
The answer is yes, and no. Generally speaking the hot weather is not a problem, if it is hot and dry, it tends to keep the fungi away. If the temperature gets above about 98, the vines tend to really slow down their processes and start stressing.
So we don't like it to be too hot, but it can get pretty warm and still be ok with them.

So now you know if you ever wondered. ;-)
