    One task that did get done despite the distractions was the pruning of the vines.  This needs to be done in January before the sap rises or the vines weep copious sap.  Done annually, it isn’t difficult, it’s only when the vine is left to its own devices that matters get out of hand.  We bundle up the trimmings and use them as kindling.
