    Here are some new grapes growing on a vine located in a back alley a few blocks from my place. image.jpg

    Yes, so far my coneflowers have done well each year since I planted them. They need to be divided again, since it spreads quickly! The butterflies seem to really love it. I need to get some bee balm too for my hummingbirds. :)

    Do you know if the neighbors use it for wine, Sci?

    Probably not, there's only one small vine. You'd be lucky to get enough grapes to make a glass of wine.

    We also have grapes growing on our back fence too. However, we can never get to them because the crows love them!

    Have you thought of placing some netting over the vines to stop the crows from feasting on your grapes?

    No not really. I think it'd be more of a hassle for me to try to save it. I believe my husband tried to eat some of it before and it was bitter. I don't think we'd know what to do with it anyways, so better the birds have it than us! :)
