    Trellis "wire" - 0.25" steel rod 20' lengths, threaded ends, used couplers and end bolts for tensioning. The rods were about $0.15/ft, couplers and bolts were also cheap. Threading the rods was putsy but what else am I gonna do..... I like how it turned out and it is easy to tension/detension. I do see a temperature affect on the tension.

    Very neat way to do this. We have Victoria red (2) and Blanc de Blanc (1) vines at this point. Will be adding a few more vines this January. They are 2 and 1 year old, planted in January and I will cut off the grapes for this year as I did for the Victoria Red last year. Looks like you have more Sun than I do as have large Oaks next door. Will be looking at picking some of the red grapes next year. Located near San Antonio, Texas.

    Well, I've got the Cab Franc in for this year (as well as others). Here's a shot.

    Should be bigger and shady, the finger is faster than the proofreader.
