Grape vines must live forever. Since we moved to the farm we have had mild and severe winters, drought and flooding, winds of 65+ miles per hour.
We have also had pigs root up every inch of the garden, working at either clearing out the ground or getting the grass trimmed. And still the grapes grow. They have returned yearly, and now that we know they are here we let them grow. We will have to learn the best time to trim them and who much to prune back.
These are Concord grapes. The grapiest grape ever. Seeds, purple, intense..flavor like grape bubblegum or kids candy. Beautiful to see and amazing to eat.
