This is what the grapevines looked like when we planted them. The first photo, you can barely see it, but it was literally a twig.
Here is a closeup of the grapevine. We ordered our grape plants from Gurney's and when it came in the mail, it was just a stick with roots. We planted it and hoped for the best.
Here is the grapevine today, 5 months later! Soon after we planted the vines, it immediately started sprouting leaves. Then every passing week, it got bigger and bigger. When we planted these, the hubby put cemented these wooden posts in the ground and screwed galvanized wire to them for the vines to grow on. We've been training the vines to follow the wire. I can't wait until next year to see if the plants produce any fruit!!
