Confession: I pruned my grapevine a bit late this year. I hope that doesn’t come back to bite me…I really want a grape harvest this year. But you know, wielding a pair of pruning shears while intensely nauseas didn’t seem a like a good plan. So I did what every responsible pregnant grape pruner would do. I put it… Keep Reading
