    We've planted grapes twice and the deer eat them about as fast as they get planted...

    not the deer...here...i think its the dog urine....the dogs are both leg lifters and every time they go up that path...they urinate on the grapes....lol....maybe too much acid? but they are alive....after the harsh winter....so far the dogs keep the deer away...but the deer are gonna figure out they are day workers only....union i suppose...dont work after 8ish...not sure about how they feel about taking on a bear for grapes...dogs cant eat grapes or raisins

    They probably look at your arbor as one long bird feeder, and are suitably grateful. Which means they aim for the exact center of your windshield as they pass overhead.

    I've had three grape vines for several years and none of them ever produced a single grape. They do produce an abundance of grape leaves, though, which are quite delicious, and since I'm supposed to be eating green leafy vegetables, and staying away from the sugar, I guesse it turned out great. Lots of luck on the grapes!
