You've got so many yummy things going! I have an arbor with Thompson seedless green grapes, and some bug invaded them almost overnight and has done great damage to the leaves. Maybe it has time to recover, if I get them sprayed soon.

Hope that everything thrives for you!

It's called 'micro-farming on under an acre'. LOL! For several years we had some black muscadines trellised in the front yard, but no amount of trimming back could keep them from being unruly. Eventually the trellis (which was a 10' banded steel unit set in concrete) finally started to give out under the sheer mass of it all. Time to try something a little less cumbersome and more aesthetically pleasing. With room to spread. Might even buy a press and see what ferments. For home consumption, of course.
