to much rain can cause rot and foaming stumps, I had over 5" of rain in 2 weeks, I found a small bad area and opened up the vine with a knife . I used swimming pool peroxide on the cut and then sulfer. The foaming is not "foaming stump" its just the peroxide doing its job.

I cleaned up the main to allow for better inspection also more air and sunlight will help keep things drier . Fans were added and sulfur applied to all cuts that were made. Glass covers over stump and infected area
