Vines are here
It was so nice to see that big brown truck pull into my dads driveway this morning. Late yesterday I got a tracking number from Grafted Grapevines so I knew that at least half of our vines were arriving.
We never got a tracking number from Herman J. Wiemer (not unexpected) so I had my fingers crossed those vines were also on the truck. As it turned out all the vines were on the truck so we are relieved.
Now we are novices at this whole thing but I was surprised at how big the vines (and roots) were. I really expected smaller vines but both the Grafted Grapevines and Herman J. Wiemer ones were big… at least to me.
After a quick inspection I bundled them back up in the plastic they came in and set them in a nice cool dark place. On Friday we’ll take them out and give them a nice soak for 24 hours before they are planted.
