Frost season

It seems that everyone in Anderson Valley has been checking their vineyard sprinklers the past few weeks. It's really quite beautiful to look out and see field after field, filled with arcs of water. It's beautiful, but practical. March is a notoriously good month for frost here, and the leaves are just beginning to peak out from the buds (see below - photos by my own Joe), so now's the time to make sure all the protectionary measures are working correctly. Luckily for Joe and I, the frost alarm isn't in our house. :)

Here's what the emerging leaves look like:
