  • What should be applied frist for woodwork?

    II am building a replacement door of 3/4" plywood with 3/4 wood trim around the exposed outer edges.

They produce lareg clusters but never seem to get very large berries as I see so many are. I think maybe there is too much foliage (vines and leaves) that is taking nourishment away from the fruit.
