Our Trial Vineyard at Russell Farm in Burleson has gone dormant and looks like a bunch of witches fingers sticking out of the ground! Our Grape plants have grown a lot in their first season. When spring approaches we will be pruning and training our plants. I have put up all of the Sponsor Signs for the vineyard and here are some pictures in case you can’t get by to see them. Thank you to all the Johnson County Master Gardeners and Travis Morris (Travis Vineyards) for making the Vineyard Trial happen.
