Grapes along our South Border

Last year we built a trellis for our Carlos Bronze Muscadine grapes and the county clean-up crew came and chopped off all our 1 year old Grapes. We didn’t know if  it was from ignorance or …. ‘blindness’. We didn’t judge.

Those Muscadine Grapes are growing/vining again, fast, so we had no choice but to create a border that is screaming its presence.

We are determined to save our Muscadine Grapes this year so we went 1 step further today. We actually marked the border of our property with a “loud” indicator of sort.

It’s physically there, so it screams our border. Right?

I even had to hang a tag, just in case, with an English/Spanish message.

 

It speaks Loud and Clear, I think.

Yes, we are getting desperate with all this  unannounced and unnecessary cutting of supposedly county land.

More to be done tomorrow when the clean-up crew is resting. It’s very unfortunate that county officials are so “edible gardening” ignorant/unfriendly.

One response to “Grapes along our South Border

  1. I hope your notice works. Our local electricity suppliers have recently massacred many trees in our town they believed were a threat to the power lines. Many of the trees will now have to be felled as they are a danger to the public.
    Some of them are over 60 years old. Great shame.
