Last summer I bought three 1 gallon grape plants from the local Home Depot for $19 each.

My idea was some sort of vine and trellus system that could serve mainly to block noise and the ugly view of the air conditioners along the side yard from the back yard.

This fall, I was faced with the conundrum of pruning the vines and I had to study and learn a bit about the proper ways to do this.

Now a couple months later, the simple leafless canes have sprouted lots of leaves and are bearing lots and lots of pea-sized grapes.

They look very happy growing there. I hope you get lots of delicious grapes this year.

how wonderful.
I had to research – again – how to prune my grapes. I think I did a good job this year. The leaves are just coming out now.

It was definately a learning curve. Cane pruning just seems so counter intuitive, but, it obviously works.

I am considering running another group of vines along the opposite side of the house since these have done so well.

I think that growing grapes is addictive!

My two cane pruning vines don’t seem to be doing well. Not sure if they are even growing this year … the other vines are looking fantastic.
