Such nice setups! Ok, I took some shots today. Unfortunately some of my vines are struggling. I have lost 2 and I attribute this to soil type and excessive rain. But, I have grapes!
Above are America. Well suited for my zone/area and soil type. There are 4 years old. America is good for red wine and makes a good port. (I had to replace one vine in this row)
This years planting of America (with some Sheridan mixed in to help the America bear).
This variety is Buffalo. I also use these to help the America produce. Grape makes a decent red wine and an awesome grape jelly. I think these vines are 5 years old.
This years planting for Cab Franc. Some are almost to the fruiting wire. And yes, I need to weed. I've been pulling them by the hand fulls. One I get one vine on the bottom wire, and trim back some of the bottom growth, I'll cover and spray the weeds.
And a shot of what's left of one of my dead vines. This vine would be going on 3 years. I will replace this vine once I spray this row (glyphosate). On the 4th year, I no longer spray as the roots should be able to compete just fine.
And finally, a broader shot of part of my vineyard. Yes, that is hops growing in the back ground. I also have an orchard (not shown).
