So, no garden this year in Woodwardville. Too much going on and too many projects to complete for our house and the property. Didn’t need something else to add to the list. Plus, our backyard at our house gets very little sun so most vegetables haven’t grown well for the past few years. (Nothing like the crazy awesome garden at our first home. Sigh. I miss that backyard.)
But, I’ll tell you what is growing in our current backyard – GRAPES! And lots of them.
A friend didn’t want these grapevines in his backyard, so Ryan planted them on the side of our garage.
And they’ve gone INSANE. They sort of look overgrown, but I don’t even care. They actually give our backyard a little more privacy and cover some of the chain link fence. (Most of the yard is fenced in a wood shadowbox style, but the areas that already had chain link stayed. They aren’t visible from the street anyhow.)
I asked Ryan if he did anything special. He said that he planted them and then let nature do her thing. I also have no idea what type of grapes they are. We are in a zone 5, if you are interested, so not exactly wine country. 😉
All this bounty means Ryan has been harvesting a big bowl of grapes every few nights. Grapes are coming out of our ears.
Seriously, how pretty are they?
