We’ve been enjoying delicious grape jelly Randi made last summer from the vines outside. Sounds like there was a very merry, very prolific harvest. The Wickstrom’s cultivated gorgeously manicured vines. These rows are stunning. So well kept, so tamed. Each sinuous vine practically sporting a starched collar and ironed slacks.
Jeremy and I have never pruned grape vines before. It sounds like it might be a lot like giving a hair cut. Which is something we can do, sort of. I sure hope we don’t butcher these. We may end up with a dissident lot, in mohawks and ripped RANCID t-shirts.
I’m sure we have a book on pruning grape vines somewhere around here.
