Uh-Oh!

I thought we were going to have a wonderful grape harvest this year, but I am a bit worried now.

During the past week I noticed something happening to the grapes. This was probably going on earlier but I was in a state of denial. I am seeing brown spots appearing on the grapes.

These spots are on all the grapes – all the vines – regardless of variety. They are circular or blotchy and hard. They are on grapes located close to the ground and higher up.

So I’m wondering if this is Black Rot. Pretty sad – I thought this was going to be a great year for grapes.
