Tree Fruit Update
Table Grape Update
Currently, table grapes are looking to have a good sized crop this year. Vineyards are looking full and healthy.
Girdling is the act of removing bark from the trunk of the tree to preserve nutrients. Girdling is done to produce a healthier crop of larger sized fruit, by allowing nutrients that would normally be directed back into the soil to nourish the peach, plum, nectarine or table grape.
