I’m not sure that all of the yard pictures really make sense without a general idea of the layout of our yard. This is my horribly inaccurate, not drawn to scale version of our yard. This gives you an idea of what you are looking at. The large pines line the drive way on the left side and line the yard, but I didn’t include them. The entire area behind the swamp at the very bottom is all woods…~138 acres of woods.

Our concord grape vines bushes are severely over grown. What you don’t see behind this picture is that some of the vines have snaked their way into the brush behind them, into the back yard and up the pine tree. We actually have Tarzan worthy vines to swing on in the back yard thanks to the grapes.
But anyway, despite the not-so-ideal set up, there are a decent amount on grapes on the vines. To protect them from the birds we have confined the vines behind a big net.
If this works, we should be blessed with some delicious grapes for grape jelly after the first frost. Cross your fingers!
