Walls of Grapes

Hello, I have been away mulching and preparing for winter. I am excited this year and I just wanted to share my grapes that will hopefully survive and be with us next year.

We are planting them along our fence line because we hope that they will create a barrier. We are going to be building things for them to climb up to 10ft. We can’t wait. It’ll be fun and also we will have grapes.

We are adventurers and have planted 24 Muscadine grapes and 4 Concord grapes. We have two seedless that we got from Walmart but I was disappointed in that purchase so I shall not mention them again.

When we put the wall up we are getting some Lattice work that we will secure to some posts and boom. They will just climb until their little hearts are content next spring. I am pretty excited.

We are working on two walls. One that surrounds our property in a huge wall of grapes (don’t worry we have a lovely irrigation system that we are starting up). We are starting with nine just to see how it’ll all work out.

Our other wall will be in front of our home so that people won’t just look in. I like the idea of 10 feet of grape filled privacy. It’ll be nice to have all of these grape vines moving on up and eventually covering the view from the road. I wish we had moved our home further back but it is what it is now.

I can’t wait and I am truly enjoying caring for my plants this year. Now that year zero has been amazing and I can’t wait for year one.
