You have some pretty good powdery there James - haven't seen that in a while! Those examples aren't as advanced as I thought they'd be at this time, are they typical of most blocks across McLaren Vale? Thankyou for the regular posts - the site looks good. Michael Zerk

Hi Zerky,

We are about two weeks behind 'normal' which is three weeks behind 2009/10.

Good to hear from you.
