Grapes…

Leave a comment

Another major task at our new homestead involved pruning a sorely neglected grape vine that I hope will thrive after this much needed trim. I think I also need to fix the trellis, but will wait to see if the vine appears to recover before investing time in that. I was afraid I had pruned too late since sap was spilling out of the cuts I made, but it appears to have recovered with vigor! 

The jungle of vines. It doesn't appear to have been pruned in several years.

Saving (hopefully not killing) the grapevine.

Over a month later and there is new growth...amazing!
