Am wondering whether to put in a couple of extra posts and make a sort of rough pergola for the grape vine, as a lean-to on the shed. I like the idea of walking right in and grapes hanging down. But what if they decided to go up instead, then they'd be a right pain to get at?
The pergola idea would also be quite good for preventing the slate paving from getting too hot. When I put in that slate paving, I didn't appreciate that slate in direct sunlight gets hot enough to burn a bare foot!
I hope last years Mildew Incident will not be repeated. Possibly I should defer the Pergola Decision until I know if the mildew is likely to be ongoing, as a pergola would reduce the airflow and potentially make the mildew worse.
I wonder if the vine leaves they use for cooking are just normal ones off grape vines, or are they Something Different?
