On one side of our property, we have a massive grape vine. We haven’t yet got around to maintaining it but when we do I’m sure it will be a champion producer. Over the last couple days, we harvested what grapes were there. I don’t think they are Concord grapes as they aren’t blackish-blue but they are tasty. We’ve now got around 50 lbs of grapes some of which we’ve frozen to take in to be pressed for wine, some of which we’ll eat. We should get about 30 bottles of wine from around 35-40 lbs of grapes.
Over the winter, I plan to build a small ‘vineyard’ right where the vine is located now. Hopefully by training and maintaining it, the vine will up its production substantially. I might even move our Kiwis over to join the grapes so all our vines are in one section. I’m not sure if Kiwi transplanting is possible – one more task for my list.
