June, 2015- Vines recover from Spring frost (secondary buds show fruit)

A series of freezing temps occurred during the night this spring which in turn froze out our primary fruiting buds. Now after a month new leaves and fruit have come forth from the secondary bud. Looking good but unfortunately we will probably get a third of the fruit we would normally get.

Picture of secondary fruit clusters. Sparse.. But at least we are getting something!
