Dear wine lovers,
This week has been dedicated to vine treatment in order to fight its worst enemy : Oïdium. Since I am working organicly, it is very important to prevent and doing so, it is possible to use products that both respect vines and environment.
The ones I used are sulfites and "prêle" that I have infused and they have been sprayed thanks to this my "sulfateuse".
Also, this week, my son Maxime and I have also planted another 70 leftother vines and I decided to insert inside an existing parcel where vines are planted every 2 meters. As we will harvest low yields , I thought this would permit us to plant more vines in the same parcel. Of course, this baby vines will struggle to find water but after alln thuis is how they will use their genes go as deep as possible.
We are still counting the buterflys in order, once again to treat the issue at its root using soft methods. At this point, it seems that the firts generation (there will be 3) is not that big this year, which means that the second and third could not make too much damages
More to come next week.
