Free Pruning Clinic at Mellowood Vineyards- March 17 & 18

If you are scooting around FairPlay on March 17th for the Cabernet for the Cure event, you might just want to stop at the free Pruning Clinic that Linda Neal of Mellowood Vineyard has put together. It continues on the 18th too, and Linda, who alerted me to the Cabernet for the Cure event (bless her heart!), sent this information in her email.,

"If you enjoy the dusting of mustard petals against your pants as you approach the tangle of canes, if you want to hold the professional #7 Felco shears in your hand as you decisively shape the vine for the upcoming season, if you want to learn the difference between shoots and suckers, buds and nodes, cordons and spurs, this is your event. We will start at 9:30 with coffee and pastry, I will demonstrate and describe the process, after which you will tackle your own vine. Prune one or more, as you like, even tagging with your name, to watch throughout the year. Afterward we will taste the fruits of our labors in delicious Mellowood wines. There is no fee, but advance registration is required by calling 530-306-9454 or linda (at) "
