I did it yesterday, I pruned the grapes, and yes it was an attempt thrown at the grapes.
I chopped a lot off too. As I was cutting I felt a drop of water on my arm, I looked up, the sky was full of high level cumulus clouds, but I couldn’t image it was rain. A few more cuts and I remembered reading that the vine will ‘bleed’ as you prune.
The vine was bleeding, as I cut. After I cleaned up it noticed a few of the ‘wounds’ had large areas of wet ‘blood stains’.
This morning as I was getting ready I looked out the bathroom window, as I often do, and surveyed my surroundings. I notice a few large glistening drops on the grape vine. It was still bleeding.
A vine bears fruit, a pruned vine bears more, sweeter fruit. We are the vines and Christ is the husbandmen
Must I be cut and bleed?
