and a grape vine too…

yesterday we added a grape vine to our fruit bearing plants collection….so we now have a big and a small cherry tree, two plum trees, a fig tree and plenty of soft fruit plants such as strawberries, blueberries and raspberries….

if you are wondering what that bit of tube sticking out of the ground is, check out this video…the idea is to direct the roots deep down so as to not interfere with anything growing in the vicinity of the vine….we chose to plant it almost right next to the greenhouse so that it is protected against the elements as well as provide the plants inside the greenhouse some much needed shade in the hotter months…trust me , it gets really hot in there…dh will build the support system next weekend….

So, in a couple of years we should be enjoying some of our very own green seedless lakemont grapes…insh’Allah….

Wishing you all a peaceful and productive week…

Salaams y hasta la vista,
