While Launceston went under….. Providence just got soggy

http://www.ihssbca.org/blog/?edu=research-paper-outlines-template So many places down the east coast of Australia were severely affected by the recent weather and Launceston was no exception, as the photo shows.  Such a beautiful photo (thanks Peter!) showing such devastation.  Providence got beaten up:  the grassed areas were a carpet of bits of trees and torn leaves, one can hardly stand up on the slopes but that’s not surprising, seeing as we had over 170 mm rain in a couple of days.  The vineyard is certainly in winter mode and I would imagine that, with the super saturated soil, there wouldn’t be a feeder root left alive.  Pruning will start in about a week.
