We have finally reached a point where enough snow has melted away, and the yard is dry enough, that I can walk around most of the yard.
At least while the ground is still frozen in the mornings.
Which meant I have finally been able to look for the base of the grape vine that got surrounded by spirea, next to the storage house.
I found it.
It’s still hard to see, so I put the arrow in. It’s hard to see because there is a spirea growing right up against it!
I’m going to have to be very careful, clearing that away.
Then I can prune it back and set up some kind of trellis for it to climb. I’m thinking of using the left over wire fencing I used to build the back gate. After that, it will be a matter of keeping the spirea from crowding it again. Hopefully, this will translate to better, bigger grapes to harvest this year. If nothing else, it’ll be easier to get to them! 🙂
While doing my much extended rounds this morning, I had some delightful company.
Butterscotch does make it hard to walk at times. 🙂
