The grapevines are doing really well. We put them in last year, and they have more than doubled in size. I'm hoping to harvest some of the leaves to pickle so that I can use them for stuffed grape leaves.
Here's a closeup of 3 of the plants. We are growing 4 different varieties. Pink Reliance seedless, Cayuga a green grape, Glenora a red seedless, and Concord.
All the plants were 1 year plants when we planted them, so technically, this will be year 3 for them. And to our surprise, 3 of the plants are growing grapes! The only plant that does not have grapes is the Concord. I'm a bit bummed by that since I was hoping to make Concord Jelly. Hopefully next year. I can't wait until the others are ready to eat. I'm so curious as to what they will taste like. Hopefully they won't be sour grapes! The hubs wants to learn to make wine, he says that's why he wanted to grow grapes. I like snacking on them. Do you grow grapes for wine? If so, what type of grapes do you grow? Do you have a good wine recipe?
