Suburban Sprawl

This grape vine was a volunteer in my sister’s yard.


I think they’re Concord grapes, but I could be wrong. In a month or so they’ll turn a lovely purple, and grape jelly making will commence. Last year we only got enough juice for three small jars of jelly, but this year the vine is heavy with grapes. We planted it next to the deck where our beehive sits, and it sprawls across the deck in every direction. I really should learn more about pruning and training plants, but letting things grow with wild abandon seems to be written into my DNA.
