Wild grape vine!


Wild grape vine!

I have carved some trails out of the forest next to our house and the area has a massive Wild Grape Vine growing throughout the trees. This huge grape vine covers about an acre of native canopy and I finally traced the vine down to its' "Mother root" where it goes into the ground. The best thing is that my 100ft water hose reaches it and I have been giving it some water and leftover organic fertilizer. {Don't tell my wife, She would kill me for taking care of a "weed"! Chuckle} Last summer this huge vine produced some really sour tasting native grapes and I'm hoping that this year under an organic soil program, that I can change the taste of the grapes and harvest them. So far, so good! :-) Note: the trunk diameter of this thing is about 2 1/2 inches! Really huge vine!
