The final harvest of grapes netted twenty-three pounds of grapes.  That brings the total harvest for the season to 60 pounds which were donated to the Greenville Food Bank with some minor sampling done by the picking crew to make sure they were just right!  According to our Small Fruit Curator, nothing needs to be done this fall to the grape vines.  The leaves will fall off and then in late winter/early spring they will be pruned back severely.  Follow this blog and we'll let you know when we are doing that task.

Hurricane Irene did some damage to the trellises and they will be straightened up at pruning time.
