Catching Up

August 16, 2009

Today I feel like I am this close to catching up on all the big jobs around the garden. I planted a  few more things and potted up more starts the past few weeks. The main progress, however, was in the job that Steven did this weekend: pruning grapes. This is what a few of the grape vines looked like at the end of May, with the leaves just coming out:

Here are a few pictures after Steven pruned them. I wish I had take a before photo. Looking at the second picture, you have to imagine vines crisscrossing the open space, so thick you can’t walk down the row. These plants are incredible. So far the grapes are looking great. If the weather cooperates, we should have a good harvest again this year.

These grapes have been pruned back.

Now we can walk throug the rows and see the grape clusters.

Here are a few other pictures from around the garden:
