anybody want some grapevines?

Here are just a few of the hundreds of feet of grapevine that I pulled off of the trees bordering the orchard this past weekend. Were I an enterprising fellow I’d be carting them down to Manhattan and selling them to the city folk as decorative wreaths.


  1. I once saw a garden bench made of old wood and decorated with grape vines. It was charming and priced at $500. I always thought it would be fun to build one. SIGH! Perhaps in my next life!

    If I was there--I'd take you up on that. I know that wasn't easy. It looks very pretty all wrapped up so neatly and lying there in the grass.

  3. O.K. Jared, I see what you mean about the grape vines...I feel your pain. Not that I do it...but you could use that huge amount for some kind of fencing?? like wattle in England? Or you can just hate it!B

    I was thinking along the same lines as Anna -- it almost looks like a beautiful piece of natural art. Could you use them as a backdrop/border in a garden? They're wonderful.
