    Grapes

    Does any one here grow grapes... I was curious about the best structure for training them up to be nice and tall...

    Im getting 3, what is the best method for supporting them?

    Do you want them growing overhead on an arbor you can stand under? That's what the old Italians around here do. Commercial growers don't do that; they grow them lower on wires. I'm sure I can steer you to some good websites. What varieties will you have?

    I live in upstate New York, about an hour north of Canandaigua, which I think is pretty wine-crazy. We have a huge grape thing that grows over a patio on this giant trellis, and makes tons and tons of grapes every year. Though, they're sort of wine grapes and don't taste too sweet.

    I think we got one Wine grape, and 2 eating grapes.

    I love wine, i just need to be able to actually make it, right now thats with the help of my mom, for obviously reasons I got a couple hybrids from Gurnies i think. (IN MY state its legal for me to drink as long as i dont go over the limit and its given to me by my parent)

    I think i like the idea of the one that grows over. More space for it to fruit. and easier to get fruit?
