It’s the busiest time of the year for our growers and winemakers in central Oklahoma. Buckets and harvest bins are either being cleaned, filled, emptied and cleaned again.
2015 was an extraordinary year for weather. From mid-April through mid-June, Norman and surrounding areas saw nearly 37 inches of rain. That’s 14” more rain than all of 2014!
Most growers experienced lower than normal crop due to excess vegetation, disease pressure, and nutrients leaching from the soil.
Hopefully, weather will cooperate a little better next year.
