January 29, 2014

Beans, Food Production

It isn’t all that hard. In fact, it’s surprisingly easy. In this new video, I show you how:

Basically, you cut back the vines and remove most of the growth, leaving about 3 – 4 buds of the previous year’s growth on each vine. I also remove little skinny vines and quite a few of the ones that cross over each other. The benefit in the spring is remarkable.

Grapes thrive on abuse. You almost can’t prune too deeply.
