There Will be Grapes this Year!

Last year we had a small showing of grapes from the vines that cover our little arbor, but this year looks a little more promising. There are lots of these baby clusters all over the Himrod variety that we planted. The other three varieties (Chardonnay, Ruby Seedless and Perlette) have leaves but no buds yet. The roof of the arbor is rapidly filling in. Hopefully it won't completely fill in, because there is something magical about the dappled light that comes through the grape vines.

How exciting!!! Grape vines are so beautiful. How lucky you are to have some in your yard.

Amy:

Yaay, grapes! I get quite a lot from the vine I planted six years ago. It needs brutal pruning or it tries to take over the screened porch. The vines I put in two yars ago haven't flowered yet, but I'm hoping this will be the year.
