Well I finally got my new vineyard started last weekend. I had worked the ground earlier and was eagerly awaiting the arrival of my new additions from Double A Vineyards. I had received 20 vines from Millers last month. I set them in some 2 gallon containers in the greenhouse. Will tell more about sources and varieties later. I rented a post hole digger with 16" auger because I had almost 200 holes to do-between posts and vines. Started at about 9:30 AM and finished in about 3 hours. What a time and labor saver!
Anyway here are some pictures of progress so far.
Just kidding about that one! Hope mine turns out like this someday.
Now some vines... first a LaCross before trimming.
Planted(same vine all pictures)
More assorted pictures..
A Frontenac started inmy greenhouse-from Millers.
Throw in a few apple blossoms- just starting in picture, but now almost full bloom.
I'll post more pictures later. Last night I set the end anchors and hope to run the wires this weekend if the weather breaks for a while(raining now).
I set 40 Frontenac, 20 St.Pepin, 25 LaCross from Double A and 20 assorted vines from Millers- some seedless- all pretty hardy.
