Grafting: Part 3

It's the beginning of September, four months after three varieties of grape budwood were grafted into our vineyard (see previous posts about the grafting: Grafting our Grapes and Grafting Part 2). The amount of growth is pretty amazing in such a short time. Next year we will be able to harvest a small crop off of the newly grafted vines and by the following year, we will get a whole crop.

has grown from 2 inches to 3 feet from the site
of the graft.
