When it kept on snowing and snowing and snowing well beyond normal, I commented to my husband that when it would finally melt that the grapes should benefit from the slow melting and deep root watering.
I guess I was right ~ the grapes are coming along nicely!
And those wonderful little pollinators showed up right on schedule. I've noticed that we have a lot of bees this year, and several different types. Buzz on little guys, buzz on!
And being that I'm into 'companion gardening' you know - planting things that enhance each other - I discovered that chives do well with grapes! They're supposed to help each other in one way or another. Don't ask how or why, I just follow a guide I found on the internet. And if it's on the internet it can't be wrong - can it?
Look out arbor, we're about to cover you! And check out those teensy-weensy clusters of grapes!
