The grapes are growing

This year it will be a slow one for my little garden, there won't be much crops growing, specially this summer that I won't be around as much. However I do have a couple things growing very well, like my grapes.

The grapevine is growing


I was not expecting them to give fruit this year because they took a long time to sprout after winter. Also, they took a long time without showing any signs of flowering.

Grape flowers!


Around mid may suddenly there was a small flower bunch growing. Some time after that they become little fruits and they have been growing since.

They lost a big part of their bunch because of storms and wind, but there is still enough fruit growing to be proud of.

I hope they will taste great! And I look forward to many more years when more and more will grow every season.

I will let you guys know how they do.

  2. We have a well established vine in our greenhouse that usually produces loads of grapes and a year or so ago we planted a couple on our plot although we will need a better summer than this one if they are to produce any fruit.

  3. Well, Fer, if you can get grape to produce fruit in a container, I hope mine planted near the patio will get busy! You must tell us how sweet the grapes are.

  4. Grapes on a balcony in a container--very impressive! You always amaze me, Fer, with what you accomplish in your little garden in Japan!

  5. That grape vine looks great, Fer! Is the grape vine a green variety? I am so surprised it is doing so well in container. I always thought one had to grow in ground. Is it a dwarf variety?

  6. I don't think I have ever seen grape flowers which is odd because I often see grape vines with grapes. I hope you have many years of plentiful harvest!

  8. Congrats! My grape vines have grown well; but I'm yet to train them. Hopefully, I can do some work @ the terrace garden this weekend. (Fingers crossed!)

  9. It's wonderful when you get a blossom like that. Those grapes look lovely. That is one fruit I would love to be able to grow but it just wouldn't work with the poof UK climate unfortunately.

  13. I must admit I didn't think it was possible to get the vine growing from such a small container. I'm interested as to what climate you generally have their with regards to average temperatures?

  17. I wonder how big is the container for one grape to live comfortably :-). I am growing two vine in a 15 gallons container and I don't know if it's big enough. My balcony looks exactly like yours and I don't really have more space for bigger container.
