When I rented my little house a year and a half ago, an old and neglected grapevine in the yard was mostly on the ground. Last March my friend and neighbor decided to give it new life. While volunteering in Italy she had learned the art of pruning vines from the Italian farmers. She thought, counted, and expertly decided what to snip and cut. Then we stretched a wire and wound the vine around it.
Today the vine is thriving, spreading to the right and to the left for many meters. It is a pleasure to see right outside my window. Thanks, B.B.!
Look at these bunches of tiny grapes starting to grow!
In these parts people eat the leaves stuffed with rice and ground meat.
