The Voice of a Grape: I’m Bleeding…but in a good way.

GrapesDrop It has been warm lately and this has heated up the soil around my roots.  Things are starting to happen(or may have happend). 

 After I have been pruned in the winter, or after harvest, I have a few cuts on my vines.  These cuts are where the sap is bleeding from.

The sap that is being pushed out is a result of the soil being warmed up.  The sap that is coming forward contains nutrients that will help with my next step, bud break.
