Planting Grapes

Yesterday, we talked about moving one of our gardens that contained raised beds. After we moved the garden, we planted five grape plants. The FindOurWays have been very excited about planting grapes. These particular grapes were purchased from Sam’s Club and were actually of pretty good quality. MrLivingOurWay was very impressed with the root system they had.

Here are some pictures of the fun:
