That's cool. What types of grapes are you growing? Are they for eating, or wine (or both)?

They are mostly for eating. I am the only grape wine lover in my house. We usually do mead and hard cider when we "brew". I am waiting to get one vine of my fav wine grape, scuppernong, to use for jams for myself. The varieties cover early, mid season and late; along with three different colors. I have multiple vines of Niagara, Interlaken and Reliance

Scuppernongs and Muscadines are some of my favorite native type grapes!
Looks like a nice setup you've got going. How long till you're up and running?

I am up and running, one of the reliance vines actually has grapes on it. Wires are now totally up, just need to finish the front fence before fall, that is the only time we have deer around. probably won't get my scuppernong vine until next year, if I order now. They sell quickly. I actually, when we were close by anyways, made a pilgrimage to see the "Mother Vine" that started the North Carolina Scuppernong wine industry.
