My brand new pergola!

Post  duhh on 2/4/2011, 1:12 am




Can't wait till this little cold snap passes so I can get all my new garden beds under this bad boy! Will be planting grapes to trellis up for shade during the summer. I'm so excited!
Very Happy

I love pergolas. The garden should look nice under there.

I have a buddy here that built one for his grapes a couple of years ago. His is doing awesome. I'm sure you will love it. It looks great.

Won't that be great! Be sure to save a spot in the shade for a chair or bench.

Once the grape plants are established, will there be a scent all around?

How lovely! I've always wanted a pergola with wisteria all over it. Guess grapes are even better since you can eat them!

I don't know. I'm sure when they bloom there will be some type of scent... I've never tried to smell grape blossoms! either way the citrus and peach trees in back will give off a great scent when they are in bloom. I wanted to do roses at first, but we are going for more of an edible landscaping. Trying for a year round harvest of fruit right now.

I did get my climbing roses in the front yard Smile

That's a great addition to your garden.
With grapes intertwining over it, it should be a nice cozy spot to sit and sip some ice[cold lemonade and watch your veggies grow.
Enjoy.

Your pergola is beautiful!

Its funny I saw it and was thinking oooh one of those would be so beautiful! Then as the thinking , I was thinking ARE YOU NUTS!!! (meaning me) The LAST thing I want is SHADE in the summer here. Our time with the sun here is so short lived, LOL.

But I bet your pergola will be so beautiful with the grapes.

I just read an article in Mother Earth News about a lady with a pergola that planted 4 kinds of grapes on it, and they all ripened at a different time of the summer. She had a table and chairs under it and would have wine and cheese with friends through the summer and they always could pick some fresh grapes to have with their wine and cheese. It was a very beautiful idea.... Smile And she mentioned how you can eat the grape leaves as well. I think there is a Greek dish that rolls up ground lamb? and rice cooked together inside of grape leaves....but I don't know I am THE most uncultured person in the world.

I *love* dolmades...you can buy jarred grape leaves, too, which makes it easier, as I think they have to be blanched and pickled before you make dolmades with them.
