It's no secret that UNH is one of the most respected Universities in the country, especially when it comes to horticulture.

According to a story in the Union Leader, UNH is holding a free event for those interested in the commercial production of seedless table grapes and kiwiberries on October 2nd at the Woodman Horticultural Research Farm.  It's free and open to the public.

The report also had this to say:

Various demonstrations will be given, including pruning, weed cultivation, irrigation, and berry evaluation to determine harvest time. Also......... oxalic acid research, historic germplasm collection, and program expansion.

 

Wow!  I had no idea there was so much that goes in to growing grapes.  There goes my retirement plan on starting my own wine company!  Weed cultivation?  Irrigation?  Oxalic Acid research?  What the heck is that stuff?

Maybe I'll stick with the first plan for retirement, just buy the wine at a store and have someone else grow the grapes.
