    Excerpt from page 1
    For most growers the triumph of harvesting fragrant clusters of dusky-bloomed grapes in rose blue-black amber purple or light red bunches is its own reward -- a test of gardening skill. Grapes are among the most desirable and best known fruits on earth prized for their beauty their place in classical legend and mythology their succulence and varied flavors as luxury table fruits their noble metamorphosis into wine and their more utilitarian roles as sources of fresh juice and tasty jellies.
    Grapes are a labor-intensive specialty crop best grown by a patient careful gardener with a feeling for the vine. Properly grown and ripened grapes are always in demand and bring good prices in the market and a roadside stands. This is one area where commercial growers cannot compete with the dedicated small vineyard tiller who can best give the vines the attention they need to produce high yields of quality fruit. Growing grapes is a good way to augment your regular income as well as stock a wine cellar and the pantry shelves -- if you have the proper site and an inclination for this vine.
    This bulletin will tell you how to grow grapes -- from planting to harvesting.
