Russell Farm Viticulture Trial 2021
We are beginning the 4th year of our 5 year Viticulture Trial at Russell Farm City Park, in Burleson. We have encountered some rather extreme weather this winter, but hopefully no real damage. The vines appear to have nice green wood, but time will tell on the buds? There will be a lot of work to be done this season as we expect a good crop of berries (grapes). This year we will have to net our vines to keep the critters out. We are expecting to be pruning our vines around March 27th. Please feel free to come out and watch and learn, if you would like. All are welcome. Times will be given very soon and will be posted.
Here are some of the nine varieties that were producing.
