Guess What This Is!

 Muscadine! Nope, not talking about the suet hanging down. Years ago I dug up some muscadine vine that was growing wild in the woods. I put a fence up for it to grow on and everything.Well, a few years later, I read that transplanting muscadine vines is a waste of time because there are so many male vines that don't produce. Okay, so I cut everything down. You guess it; It came right back. Okay, that's cool. Just grow, that will be fine for birds and such. So last year I was walking past the tree and just looked up and saw four muscadines. Yea!!

Look what I've got this year. It's hard seeing the little cluster of berries because the camera wanted to focus on the leaves. Plus the clusters are not very big yet. But there are gobs of clusters on the vines. Now I also have to make sure the vines don't go to high in the tree.

I bush hogged my pasture yesterday. It looks so much better now. But the blades need lowering and then do it again.

I want to take some rest on your green pasture place, it's very relaxing and refreshing place for us :D

Being a fellow "Louisianaian", I do love muscadines are. You can make great jelly with them. You pasture is such a beautiful green. I hope we keep having the wonderful weather (rain--Hey).

I heard the rule for vines is the first year they sleep, the second year they creep and the third year they leap. And keep leaping.

That is wonderful, Becky. Congratulations!
You can lower the blades on a bush hog? I did not know that. Hubby bush hogs and then goes over it with a garden tractor.

Linda, actually you lower the bush hog where it is connected at the tractor. The two side lifts is where it is lowere. My brother does it for me.
