This past Wednesday, I started the morning harvesting asparagus. I spent midday pruning the blueberry bushes. And late afternoon, Chris taught me how to prune the grapevines. I love days like this. I love doing things to help the orchard and to help our plants grow to their fullest capacity.
The grapevines are fun to prune because they go from being a tangled mess to being a neat row of buds along the main cordon. I also learned about grapevine bleeding, which is pretty cool!
I hope you all had a wonderful week. As we creep slowly to June, we are keeping our fingers crossed that our early strawberry varieties made it through the frosts.

I Heard it Through the Grapevine
This is what the cordon (the main vine growing from the ground) looked like before I pruned it. It’s an impressive amount of growth for one year! Grapes are really a satisfying plant to prune because you bring order to the tangled chaos.
