Barron 2404 about 6 ft long 37 days from soaking. Today was the 1st day of vine burying because the secondary roots are popping out of the nodes. I'm trying a slightly different method of burying vines this year. Last year I mixed everything into the mixture and then covered the vines. This year I'm spreading some Azos and Mykos under the node and then burying with a 50/50 mixture od compost and sand. Diluting with sand because the compost is super rich. Last year I didn't water in the burying mixture. This year I'm drenching the mixture on the vines with a concocotion of biologicals. So just to repeat myself, which I do a lot more of as I get older, I still have not given the plant any "fertilizer" of any sort. I know everything the plant needs is in the soil. The experiment is to see if adding lots of biologicals will make the system more efficient. Seems to be working. Those big leaves are 2 ft across. I don't know if that's a good or bad thing.
