Grapes are so popular here that most families who have the space grow their own. Care for these plants includes an interesting process. This picture captures the “trifecta” of grapevine life. The mature vine growing; the dead, pruned branches; and the ashes from the branches burned for warmth or cooking, and then used to feed the vine for continued growth. Father, allow our personal pruning to bring nourishment and growth for a fruitful harvest. Amen.
