Fruits of His Labor

Last weekend was exciting for Andrew due to a delivery by FedEx - grapevines!

Two seedless Concord grape vines to be exact. That's right, anything can be delivered through the mail these days:
Andrew was very pleased with his selection. His inspiration? The grapevines his parents planted in the house he grew up in:
Like most boys, Andrew happily went to play outside in the dirt - I mean, dig manly holes in the yard for the vines while I heckled him from the deck above:
What you can't see in the pictures is the lattice that faces this part of the side yard. With the two vines securely planted, we're hoping they will grow and mature into a nice cover on the side of the deck, plus a great source of grapes that are well suited for juices and jellies!
