Getting Ready for Pruning

12.18.12-pre-prunerDavid is getting the pre-pruner ready. Pruning will probably not start until mid-February.

We like to wait as late as possible to inhibit bud growth which can be damaged by frost, and with this pre-pruner the work can go much faster. It cuts the canes about 6 inches above the growth wire eliminating a lot of heavy physical work. The workers then go down the rows cutting back the canes to the desired bud count.
