No, it's not a gay grapevine...I think.
I'm always in search of a better scarecrow. The birds, especially mockingbirds, just love the grapes. Last year, I put in netting but my wife thinks that crowded the plant together too much resulting in small grapes.
This year, I'm going with a high-tech scarecrow. You'll see this a lot in wine country.
I've got some holographic tape that I cut into strips and tie in strategic parts of the plants.
It's supposed to give the birds bad acid flashbacks and drive them away. I know it does it for me.
We'll see how it goes come harvest time.
