A hidden vineyard escape...

When we finally got the side of the house all set up, garden growing and everything. I decided to plant some grapes. I thought it would take up the extra space on the side. Every year I thought they died so I bought another 2 plants and planted them.. then the 3rd year.. all 6 of them came up like mad! We built little boxes around them, filled them with "chicken poop" and put 4 posts in the ground. Got some cattle fence wire from Gebos, cut it in half and used huge nail staples to hold the wire to the posts. I have trimmed them every year, back to the wire and they've tripled in size. My neighbors hate me.. lol

This is so cool! Love the look of grapevines. You should also submit this in the Lawn Wars TV Show contest. This is a very unique idea for the side yard. Go to the Yard Contests tab to get started.
