I’ve been thinking about pruning lately. We have a grape vine on our fence. It belongs to the neighbors. At first, I thought it might be dead. Turns out, it is a late growing plant.
Have you ever felt like a late growing plant?
Then, once it gets growing, it grows amazingly fast… but if you just let it grow, it won’t produce hardly any fruit. It will just be this beautiful, fruitless plant. Okay, there is a bit of fruit, but it isn’t good, and it isn’t plentiful. So, in mid-July, just when it really get to growing, we have to trim it back to practically stubs again so that it can grow to have good, plentiful fruit.
