Grape Shape

29 Jul

..over the first 5 years of having grapes we have had great success with growing grapes..but in reading about wineries and encouraging proper shape of grapes plants I thought the trellis area could use some augmentation. Early spring I hacked off all of the vines I did not want to keep and limited growth to 2 or 3 vines on each plant with the hopes of training the vines in a more controlled fashion. The though process is that we do not want lots and lots of grapes but we want less grapes with more size and flavor…worth a try…experimentation is fun!

..and as the season progresses I have been giving it a trim up to continually shape the vines..Not a fast process but by this time next year the vines should be all trained up! The trellis looks a little bare this year compared to other years as a result..but the growth is still fairly healthy
