Grapevines

My hope by starting this group is that there are people out there that can help me learn to care for my grapevines. If you know a thing or two about caring for grapes please feel free to share your wisdom.

"Well I just have to many plants of different kinds and trees so I can't possibly cover them all. I brought my fig tree in under the front porch and covered it and covered the spinach and that was it. Hopefully the rest of the trees I just…"

"  It is supposed to get down to 30 degrees F on 3-15-14.  I am thinking I should cover up all the buds, but it has been too windy.  I hope yours continue to do well, William."

"    William, my friend, you really got to try some freshly picked muscadine grapes!   They have a taste all their own.  They are native to the southeast portion of the USA.  Therefore, they have a natural resistance to…"

"Don I kind of have the same problem with the grapes on the fence line. I ordered seedless from TY TY out of GA and got seeded and to return them is a problem and they want to charge you $20.00 right off the top to ship them. Know I to go other…"

Don Reeves z7, TN commented on Pam Duczkowski MI-Z4's group Grapevines
"William, thank you.  I have 6 grape vines, and still have 4 to ripen, and 3 of those are muscadines grapes. I only got about 5 lbs from my red seedless grapes.  Walmart mis-marked them, so I am not sure what kind of red seedless they are.…"

"Don, Great looking grapes wish I could get some like that. I do have some seeded grapes out on the fence line that are doing good this year. I planted 4 plants of Ladyfingers this past spring. Hopefully in a few years I'll have some seedless…"

William Brooks Zone 7/OK commented on Pam Duczkowski MI-Z4's group Grapevines
"I found some Ladyfinger grapes and there planted and starting to leaf out provided the cold spell stays west of Oklahoma City they will make it. I got 4 plants so I could get at least 1 to grow."

"Don I haven't tried Mascadines. If they have seeds I won't use them I have 3 plants that have seeds and they were supposed to be seedless. I ordered some ladyfingers which are seedless and I love them.  I use to have good grape crops…"

Don Reeves z7, TN commented on Pam Duczkowski MI-Z4's group Grapevines
"William, my mascadines have such an acidic pH and thick skin that the bugs and birds don't care for them, unlike my concord-type grapes.  Do you like mucscadines (or scuppernogs, as they say in North Carolina)?  Here's a pic of…"

Still Waiting for Warm Weather

Michigan weather sure has made gardening a challenge this year. We have gone through dry spells, wind, cold and day after day of rain. Sometimes I feel like I should wrap my vege garden up at night. On the positive side, which is the better side, I have really enjoyed the challenge.

My husband has been working on a potting shed for me and the last window went in tonight. Now all we have to do is finish the trim and get the window boxes made and I can focus on getting the inside finished. I'm very excited and very happy that he has made this dream a reality for me. At least I thnk it is for me...maybe he just wants my gardening supplies out of his garage.

Hope everyone is enjoying their garden time when they can get it; I know I am.

It is called Cedar Hedge. She has been raising hostas for over 20 years and has the most incredible gardens. You can walk through and see mature hostas and other plants/ It is so inspirational...makes you want to come home and get to work. Then she has hundreds of kinds of hosta plants for sale, from like $5 to ?? (I didn't look at the collectors table) She loves to talk about hostas, but isn't intrusive. Just a fun place. Oh...by the way, It is in Interlochen and you would need directions to find it...it is just at her home. I think she has a web site.

Hi Pam,
Just had a great day at a local hosta place. She has the most amazing gardens and hundreds of hosta varieties. Plus she is a very enthusiastic gardener and hosta lover!!! My friend and I had so much fun and came home with several hostas!! The mini-hostas are adorable!

Hi Pam,
I'm from Traverse City, and I'm beginning to think that this whole summer is going to be crazy! But things are growing...and surprisingly, doing pretty well. Nice to have people to chat with about out plant families!

I hope that one day my kids will do the same as I. I believe they will because we exposed them to this. I believe it's so important that they see alternatives to grocery stores that ship their vegetables from some other country and to prevent spoilage spray them with something our bodies cannot digest. We are showing them a good thing. Especially if you can't get the peas into the house!

Hello Pam, good to meet you... I was out 'til sunset planting corn and pumpkins last night. So you really aren't too late. I have a kitchen garden here in town. My husband has a hobby farm outside of town, we have been keeping an eye on the apples. Last year was devastating. We had a hard frost on Memorial day, then a tornado on June 13th, then drought the rest of the summer. We waited like you til the crazy weather was over, we hope. So much for global warming, I think were getting the next ice age here!

Welcome Pam! I know what you mean when you say everyone is tired of listening about your gardening. My family won't help me but when we have company and they compliment on the gardens, they're the first to say thank you! LOL

Hello fellow freezing Michigander, or do you prefer Michiganian? I like Gander better. Just joined and am interested in area gardeners and chatting about plants. Everyone in my house is sick of me and my plants! Hope to chat soon.

Don't worry. I, too, am still guessing & figuring it out, Welcome!

Hey, Pam. I live in zone 6, so warmer a bit. But in honesty, I love being a composter! I just throw in scraps & eggs shells all spring, summer & autumn. Then let it sit over the winter & ready to be dumped into the veggie garden next spring. well worth it!
