I have been back in the vineyard doing a few different projects. One of them is starting some winter pruning. As I have been pruning the vines I get to see all kinds of interesting things. The first interesting thing I saw was this.
At first glance it looks like a diamond encrusted bracelet. I am unsure what it really is, my guess is some kind of egg sac. It wasn't smooth, all of those white things were bumps and it was wound around a vine. Next picture for size.
I am also still finding snails on leaves, I am still amazed that these little creatures will climb 4-5' up a vine to munch leaves.
