Harvest season is upon us and it came earlier than usual. Wine grapes ripened 10-12 days earlier than usual according to Paul Verdegaal, University of California Cooperative Extension viticulture farm adviser for San Joaquin County. He stated it was a result of the increased rainfall during last October through December, despite the drought, in combination with warm weather during the winter. This seems to be the trend even for tree nuts as harvesting began during the first few weeks of August. Our high hopper, low hopper, and grape tank trailers were being picked up much earlier as a result and by the third week in August all the trailers have gone out to the fields to pick up their harvest.
