    Grape Vines

    Hl Ayupmeducks At the time i was only about 7 or 8 or 9 years of age did not know anything about pruning but just to tell your mates that you had a lean-to with a grape vine in well you felt a million dollars. Of cause this was in the fifties when the only time you saw a bunch of grapes was at Christmas.

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    Went to Barcelona for our 50th wedding anniversary from the hotel we walked to see the fountains, Friday night was Queens night (Feddie Mercury) When the music/song's of Queen started the fountains changed colour/ shapes/ect all this and Freddie singing it was just awesome. If i recall this work of art was done for the World Cup.

    Grape Vines

    Going back to Grape Vines Living in St Ann's we did not have a garden (or bath room) and dad been dad loved his allotment. Any thing you can think of dad grew it, now at the end of our allotment was a summer house with a lean to conservatory and guess what, in the conservatory was a grape vine also a peach tree, now each summer from knee high I looked after the grape vine and peach tree, it took 10 years for me to get 1 peach and the grape vine WELL!!! never did give me any grapes. So the moral of this story is leave it to the experts or failing that buy them at Morrisons.
