What I’m Reading Now

The Grape Grower, by Lon Rombough.  I’m about 2/3 of the way through it and am very impressed with the quantity of information provided.  Knowing absolutely nothing about growing grapes, I am confident that upon the completion of this book I will be able to start growing some vines next spring.  I fact, that is exactly what I am going to do.

Lon also sells tons of different grape cuttings for anyone looking to grow their own grapes, in addition to scions from fruit trees for the more experienced guys and gals looking to graft different varieties on their own rootstocks.  Here’s a link to the grapes cuttings for sale, with a brief description.  I’m leaning towards the Venus, a seedless variety shown below.
