    Thank you Ann Marie! Great info and sounds like you are on a good track.

    Maybe as the biology in the soil picks up then it will be able to keep up with the demands of the plant. Our girls get hungry at fruit fill!

    Not sure if it’s practical for you but nutrients absorb very well thru the bark. Spraying carbs, nutrients, etc on the woody stems below your first wire would work very well to get extra nutrients into the plant and not contaminate the bloom. I like doing it with trees but it may not be practical for grapes but I thought I would throw that out there as an idea.

    Keep us informed! And post harvest feeding will really set your crop up for success next year.

    Cheers!
