Despite the lovely, snowy photos on the front page, we're not seeing much winter weather so far this year. We've had some chilly days interspersed with warmer ones. We certainly enjoy working outside on the warmer days, as have bluebirds, cardinals, and our current resident falcons. Muscadine winter pruning is in full swing. The winter pace of vineyard activity is very pleasant, and we'll enjoy the mild conditions as long as they last.
