No, not yet, but we are planning on growing grapes in the future on a trellis that runs above our bedroom window on the south side of our house. I am finding loads of information at our public library. The last books I checked out were "The Alabama Fruit and Vegetable Book" by Felder Rushing (lots about pruning), and "Eat More Dirt" by Ellen Sandbeck. Both are really helpful to me.

RE: Grapes

Thanks, I will check and see if I can find those books here, my S-I-L planted three vines a few years ago, built a big trellis for them, but has never "really" cared for them at all, I think they need some food and pruning for sure and I will water them this summer so maybe we will get a grape or two, have no idea what kind they are.
