“Bud Break” status

As everyone knows, this year has had a challenging start, as far as weather is concerned.  Spring is way behind, and so are tree blossoms, asparagus and grapes – as well as everything else.  Today we got our first small harvest of asparagus, which I think may coincide with bud break of Concord grapes.

Here are some pictures of buds on our current grape varieties – for future reference:
