I love the individual personalities of older vines like these head-pruned vines that are grown without any trellising or training. These young green shoots will eventually become wild mops of growth as the Spring progresses, like hundreds of green fountains sprouting from the dry soil. Vines like these often receive no irrigation other than what may fall from the sky,but from their gnarled roots and serpentine canes of green, they often yield the most complex of fruit. -- Alder Yarrow
