Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires is elected and becomes Pope Francis the 266th Pope.
Born on 17 December 1936 in Buenos Aires, of Italian descent, he was ordained as a Jesuit in 1969. When in Rome, he often preferred to keep his Jesuit black robe on, instead of the cardinal’s red and purple vest he was entitled to wear.
Through adverse Mars will the monarchy
Of the great fisherman be in ruinous trouble:
The young red black one will seize the hierarchy,
The traitors will act on a day of drizzle.
The penultimate Pope was termed “Glory of the olive”. Cardinal Ratzinger took the name “Benedict XVI”. Notably, the Olivetan order of the Roman Catholics followed the rule of Saint Benedict !
Due to sudden resignation of Pope Benedict XVI on 31st March, 2013, we now come to the “Last Pope” prophesized as “Petrus Romanus” or “Peter the Roman”. St. Malachy wrote, “Petrus Romanus, qui paſcet oues in multis tribulationibus: quibus tranſactis ciuitas ſepticollis diruetur, & Iudex tremẽdus iudicabit populum ſuum. Finis.”
Translated into English, it says, “Peter the Roman, who will nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The end.”
This prophecy indicates that “Peter the Roman” will be the last Pope and at the end of his reign, Rome will be destroyed. This pope will expend a great deal of the church’s wealth to provide for the people as he does not feel that there is a need for the accumulation and display of wealth.
Other prophecies indicate that in late November or early December the last pope will have to evacuate Rome in a Time when 2 suns will be in the sky. The end of the papacy of Rome is near. The Roman Catholic Church will once again be one of many christian churches. The end of the hierarchy, The Imperial pontificate of Rome. pg
I have recently experience the fun of trying out a new table game that anyone can play. This may turn into a “must have on hand” game to entertain all ages from quite young to very advanced!
All that is needed is a playing surface, Table, floor or even the ground and a hand full of “Line Dice” See site:
These are 15mm cubes engraved with tracks and arrows that indicate travel and direction of play. The rules are simple to learn and the games, fairly quick.
After the rules are understood, Strategies need to be developed to force a winning combination. Much like in Chess but fewer moving parts and all the die are the same, with 6 possible faces to be exposed.
Some chance or luck in the throw and then skill in play of the results.
This may be a great addition to the game drawer along with playing cards, domino’s and piped playing dice.
I got to play along with my children and grandchildren at the kitchen table.
I also got to play the game along with my son and his friends at a local bar. pg

DEPORT HER TO AMERICA !
Gun-toting granny Ava Estelle, 81, was so ticked-off when two thugs raped her 18-year-old granddaughter that she tracked the unsuspecting ex-cons down… And shot off their testicles.
“The old lady spent a week hunting those men down and, when she found them, she took revenge on them in her own special way,” said Melbourne police investigator Evan Delp.
Then she took a taxi to the nearest police station, laid the gun on the sergeant’s desk and told him as calm as could be: “Those bastards will never rape anybody again, by God.”
Cops say convicted rapist and robber Davis Furth, 33, lost both his penis and his testicles when outraged Ava opened fire with a 9-mm pistol in the hotel room where he and former prison cell mate Stanley Thomas, 29, were holed up.
The wrinkled avenger also blew Thomas’ testicles to kingdom come, but doctors managed to save his mangled penis, police said. “The one guy, Thomas, didn’t lose his manhood, but the doctor I talked to said he won’t be using it the way he used to,”
Detective Delp told reporters. “Both men are still in pretty bad shape, but I think
they’re just happy to be alive after what they’ve been through.”
The Rambo Granny swung into action August 21 after her granddaughter Debbie was carjacked and raped in broad daylight by two knife-wielding creeps in a section of town bordering on skid row.
”When I saw the look on my Debbie’s face that night in the hospital, I decided I was
going to go out and get those bastards myself ’cause I figured the Law would go easy on them,”‘ recalled the retired library worker.
” And I wasn’t scared of them, either – because I’ve got me a gun and I’ve been shootin’ all my life. And I wasn’t dumb enough to turn it in when the law changed about owning one.”
So, using a police artist’s sketch of the suspects and Debbie’s description of the sickos, tough-as-nails Ava spent seven days prowling the wino-infested neighborhood where the crime took place till she spotted the ill-fated rapists entering their flophouse hotel.
“I knew it was them the minute I saw ‘em, but I shot a picture of ‘em anyway and took it back to Debbie and she said sure as hell, it was them,” the oldster recalled…
“So I went back to that hotel and found their room and knocked on the door, and the minute the big one opened the door, I shot ‘em right square between the legs, right where it would really hurt ‘em most, you know. Then I went in and shot the other one as he backed up pleading to me to spare him.
Then I went down to the police station and turned myself in.”
Now, baffled lawmen are trying to figure out exactly how to deal with the vigilante granny. “What she did was wrong, and she broke the law, but it is difficult to throw an 81-year-old woman in prison,” Det. Delp said, “especially when 3 million people in the city want to nominate her for Mayor.”
DEPORT HER TO AMERICA – WE NEED HER!
Here’s a thought to warm some of your hearts….
From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia. Hi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the real figures from Down Under.
It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to
surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.
The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. (Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not and criminals still possess their guns!)
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.
There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.
Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in ‘successfully ridding Australian society of guns….’ You won’t see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information.
The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note Americans, before it’s too late!
Will you be one of the sheep to turn yours in?
WHY? You will need it.

Canned spiced beets are a great way to preserve a beet crop for salad addition, vegetable dish or even desert.
After asking several people for their favorite recipe for canned beets, I put them together for this recipe that has turned out to be a tasty way to preserve part of my gardens production. After a full season of growth and several fall frosts I harvested about 50 feet of single row of “torpedo” beets, “Fortex” from Johnny’s seeds. A very sweet red beet when mature and good eating, thumb size young or fist size late harvest.
Prepare beets by trimming off root tips and leaf head. Scrub the beets very clean as we will be saving the juice to preserve all of the nutrients. As I picked beets enough to fill a 18 quart cook pot, this recipe is sized for this amount, 12 pounds of beets, 12 quarts yield.
12 pounds cleaned beets.
12 cups apple cider vinegar
the saved beet liquid
5 cups sugar
2 table spoons salt
10 table spoons spices
ground cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg one third each or to suit your taste
Add 6 cups water and half the salt, to pot and beets. Cover and cook 20 minuets and then allow to cool to working temperature. remove beets from pot and save liquid. Scrape off skin, a small knife held 90 degrees to the beet surface works best.
Add ingredients to liquid in pot and simmer/low boil for 30 minuets, stir occasionally while you skin and slice beets. Slice 1/4 inch or thinner, smaller pieces will pack tighter in jars. Suit your needs, be creative. Pack jars to 1/2 inch of jar rim. 12 pounds should yield 12 quarts of packed jars.
After liqueur has settled pour over packed beets, leave at least 1/4 inch of head space in jars, clean jar rims and add jar lids and rings. You should have extra liquor left over, a little more then a cup.
After the water in the wet bath reaches 210F. Boil sealed jars of beets 20 minuets to complete cooking and canning. Age a week or more and enjoy! pg
Update: this recipe works well for carrot’s as well. pg
Letter from Keith Gorzell to PG Sharrow
Howdy, My apology for the delays, but below is the lengthy UN Agenda 21 info previously promised. My quest to learn more about this surreptitious erosion our freedoms in the name of “sustainability” began while preparing a challenge to the Wetland Reserve Program (WRP) proposed by my neighbor in 2007 that will impact my ranch property. This issue crosses the entire political spectrum in rural and urban America as you will find in the verity of links. I appreciate the value and some pitfalls of alternate and improved energy and sustainable agricultural processes, having managed wind energy and diesel emission control projects, and manufacturing board from straw. I look forward to your comments and to working with you to halt and reverse the negative impacts of this Agenda. If you would prefer this information as a Word.doc attachment, let me know. All the best, Keith

What is Agenda 21, Who should know, How will it affect you, and Why to take heed.
UN agenda 21 is a term that must become familiar to any person, producer and leader in the United States who is involved in production of food, fiber and raw materials, or the second amendment and property rights. UN Agenda 21 was established at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, or “Earth Summit”, in Rio de Janeiro as a “global agenda for transition to sustainability in the 21ast century”. Though never having been formally accepted or ratified by the United States Congress or Judicial system, this “soft law” agenda is being implemented by executive order, bureaucratic stealth and fiat via NGOs and government agencies such as the EPA, Department of Interior and USDA, plus Nature Conservancy, USGBC and Public Lands Council. House of Representative Concurrent Resolution 353 of 1992 technically expressed support but not open debate and ratification.
Our taxes are being used to eradicate our property rights. Under the guise of “Sustainability” and “Environmental Stewardship”, our property rights, water rights, the “right to farm” and our Constitution are being methodically undermined by mostly well meaning public servants and “environmentalists” who are not aware they are tools in the systematically destabilizing and destroying of access to our resources and our ability to cost effectively produce food, fiber, shelter, minerals and energy. Prudent use of and recycling of resources is a common sense means of sustaining life on our planet and “feels good”. However, the concept of entrepreneurial success and personal responsibility, as in the United States, has dramatically increased our efficiency in utilizing and preserving resources. This has resulted in a food and fiber cost in proportion to average income that is among the lowest in the world. This has freed about 98% or our population to pursue other less strenuous endeavors with greater income, which has exponentially enhanced our standard of living.
China, Russia, and most authoritarian or “third world governments have little regard for actual implementation of UN Agenda 21, but are willing to goad us and continue to erode our competitiveness in the world. Even more damaging, we are being manipulated to fund their “efforts” while a significant percentage of the support funds are being skimmed as graft which is customary in those nation states.
UN agenda 21 takes a stealthy and underlying, but fundamental top down approach that a small select group of unelected or regulated World central planners have greater rights to control land and resource utilization than owners of property, water rights, and fire arms and businesses related thereto. A deeper agenda is to remove human access and habitation from vast areas of private lands such as in the western United States in the pretext of “environmental sustainability” for wildlife. Understanding the finances and motives of the persons and organizations behind UN Agenda 21 is vital to diverting the hidden agenda of this serious treat to our survival, so that we may persevere to preserve and enhance our access to property and resources for future generations.

Agenda 21 – The UN Blueprint for the 21st Century http://www.wiseupjournal.com/?p=475 (starting at paragraph 7) “Maurice Strong, Club of Rome member, devout Bahai, founder and first Secretary General of UNEP, has been the driving force behind the birth and imposition of Agenda 21. While he chaired the Earth Summit, outside his wife Hanne and 300 followers called the Wisdom-Keepers, continuously beat drums, chanted prayers to Gaia, and trended scared flames in order to “establish and hold the energy field” for the duration of the summit. You can view actual footage of these ceremonies on YouTube. During the opening speech Maurice Strong made the following statements: “The concept of national sovereignty has been an immutable, indeed sacred, principle of international relations. It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation. It is simply not feasible for sovereignty to be exercised unilaterally by individual nation states, however powerful. The global community must be assured of environmental security.” – Link http://www.nationalcenter.org/DossierStrong.html “It is the responsibility of each human being today to choose between the force of darkness and the force of light. We must therefore transform our attitudes, and adopt a renewed respect for the superior laws of Divine Nature.” – Link http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/policy.html?Itemid=0 “Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake use of fossil fuels, appliances, air-conditioning, and suburban housing – are not sustainable. A shift is necessary which will require a vast strengthening of the multilateral system, including the United Nations.” Strong’s Rio opening speech also included the following: “Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?”

On Sheep, Wolves and Sheepdogs http://www.killology.com/sheep_dog.htm
Well I hope I formatted Keiths letter correctly. Not sure what sheep dogs and wolves have to do with it.
I have known Keith since we became teenagers back in the early 1960s. Rancher, inventor, US Naval pilot and CalPoly graduate. We have worked together on many projects over the last 50 years. pg
Keith’s reply included:The Sheepdog comment at the end of your post is noted. I have reread that linked article to see why it was added. The closing paragraph quoted below helps tell the story. At first I hesitated to answer your request to post my letter. However, rereading that link is a reminder from which I cannot shrink. I had already chosen to take another “step up that continuum, away from denial” when at the end of my introducing e-mail when I stated, “I look forward to your comments and to working with you to halt and reverse the negative impacts of this Agenda”. Your did the same in your request to post. Lets Roll.
“This business of being a sheep or a sheepdog is not a yes-no dichotomy. It is not an all-or-nothing, either-or choice. It is a matter of degrees, a continuum. On one end is an abject, head-in-the-grass sheep and on the other end is the ultimate warrior. Few people exist completely on one end or the other. Most of us live somewhere in between. Since 9-11 almost everyone in America took a step up that continuum, away from denial. The sheep took a few steps toward accepting and appreciating their warriors, and the warriors started taking their job more seriously. The degree to which you move up that continuum, away from sheephood and denial, is the degree to which you and your loved ones will survive, physically and psychologically at your moment of truth.” ………Thanks, Keith

The raw FRP ( Fiberglass Reinforced Polyester) shell form needs to be repaired and trued before the actual condenser can be created on it. Due to working alone there are starved areas in the FRP where there is not enough polyester resin to float the fiberglass. These white streaks are weak areas and need to be ground out and refilled with FRP before the shell can be built up and trued. There are many high areas that must be ground down to a minimum thickness and all other areas built up to obtain a smooth and true curve with little or no ripple under the capacitance foils.
After the minimum thickness is true and strong and stable, the low areas that remain can be filled with resin fillers and further trued. It took most of 6 weeks to get to this point. Now the edge must be trued to the center point so the curvatures are even and smooth.
Electron fields concentrate at points of sharpest curvature and we want the fields to maximize at the disk edge with the least loss. The more true and smooth this surface is the better the quality of the capacitance layers to be created on it. Any high areas can result in thin dielectric and possible failure. Any low areas will result in loss in capacitance.
To obtain a true edge a wire is connected to the top center point and used to draw concentric circles that are tested with the template that is a cut and marked piece of heavy corrugated card board. The use of this shows the areas that need to be ground down or built up to achieve a true shape. After nearly 3 gallons of filler the surface is very true. Now layers of polyester resin are applied and sanded to create a smooth surface, each more smooth and true then the last. Now I need to clean the work area as everything is covered with a thick layer of polyester dust.
The 130 turn spiral wound high voltage coil has been cut out of the old device and mounted under the disk frame with the plasma jet pointed down.
The black coil around the spiral coil is the 24 turn primary coil, and the white coil above it is the bundle of driver coils for the twitch coils.
Inside of the central frame cage is the shell field driver coil that is connected to the groundplain in the rim and to the surface field cap on top of the coil and the outer skin of the shell.
The shell field coil is induction driven 165 turns of 12ga tw covered wire and should create a 100,000 volt field on the shell capacitance due to the 600+ volt per turn field strength.
The shell field coil and twitch coils are loosely coupled to the main field and are jointly connected to the groundplain to make their operation independent of any back EMF from the spiral coil and primary driver that are connected together as an autocoil.
The primary and spiral coils should drive the plasma jet pincushion to about 100,000 volts. At some time the primary coil can also be connected to the groundplain if needed for testing.
The primary coil is a bundle of 24 turns of stranded 12ga THWH inside polyethylene tubing and is powered by the 15,000 volt spark gap set. This should set up a 600+volt per turn field inside of all the coils
The twitch coils are mounted and connected to the groundplain. 2 turns per twitch coil are bundled into the white twitch coil driver necklace above the primary coil to independently provide 1200 volts to each twitch coil LC set. The twitch coils are 90 degrees to the other coils so are nearly independent of the main field.
Every other segment is connected to the groundplain and bottom of the shell field coil. A coil/shell cap with carbon fiber whip has been created and covered with aluminum foil to act as the connection from the top of the field coil to the shells’ upper aluminum covering. The upper third needs to be trued by grinding and filling to the finished level as I prepare to apply the inter condenser copper foil.
The FRP shell is ready for the addition of the copper foil segments that act as the inter layer of the shell condenser. Each segment connects to one side of the twitch coil behind it
Next, add the shell condenser copper foil inter layer on the shell form. After several attempts I have found a way to apply a satisfactory copper foil layer to the form.
WOW! This is starting to look impressive! If nothing else this is a work of Art or at least of PG. When the outer shell is finished this will be stunning! even if it doesn’t move.
The blue level is tape to hold the foil segments against the wires from the interior circuits. This is removed as I create the outer edge.
The outer edge shape is done and I am ready to build up the FRP shell over the inter condenser foil level. The Resin needed is on hand and the fiberglass mat is on its’ way. Hurrah! the end is in sight.
The Fiberglass mat has arrived and is being applied. Gores of mat are cut and taped in place with a slight overlap, then catalyst treated resin is poured on and rolled into the mat until the glass “floats” and air bubbles are eliminated. Fast work is necessary to complete the fill all the way around before the resin sets. To successfully make this, by myself, it is done in 3 layers. Each layer of mat requires the application of 3 and a half gallons of treated resin.
The shell shape is complete and covered with aluminum foil gilding.
A few coats of polyester and sand it smooth.
I just, have to, smoke test this!! Chase a few electrons around and around! light up some old florescent tubes.
It has been nearly 20 years since I energized the great coil
27 February 2013
The polyester coated shell is well cured and has been moved outside the hanger area. Now I have a lot more room to work and I have the greenhouse back for early spring grow out.

An inexpensive greenhouse that goes up fast is a hoophouse made up of PVC pipe and clear polyethylene covering .
This is a rebuild of a hoophouse that I originally created in the winter of 96-97 and after 6 years removed when I built the main dugout greenhouse.
This year I recreated it with some improvements to reflect experience of the earlier use.
As before, this is a very nice place to work in the winter and early spring. Also a great place to sit in and visit with friends when the weather is too nasty to be out in the nearby Veranda.
To create this hoop house, I used 1 and 1/4 inch PVC schedule 40 pipe, 10 foot lengths, these were glued together with “T”s or “X”s and spaced 48 inches apart.
The hoops are anchored with 3/4 inch steel pipe driven into the ground on 48 inch centers in rows 12 feet apart.
By supporting the hoop ends 8 inches above the ground I raised the center of the hoop to 7 feet of clearance under the stiffeners and made the house feel much larger. Lateral stiffeners are run from end to end to stabilize the ends and spread the loading in wind and snow. One on each side and one in the center. The hoop stiffeners are 2×8 – 48 inch long, cut to match the hoop curve, and “duck” taped to the hoops.
After the ends are created and stabilized to be square and plumb, cover them with the sheet plastic and fix it with “duck” tape on or around the pipe and staple into any wood framing. For best results tape the plastic and then staple through the plastic and tape. Only after every thing else is done do you attach the main covering. It is best if you have help for this part as the wind will come up as soon as you start this. If you tape and staple the covering to the windward side you can pull and attach the covering on the leeward side by yourself. Work from the center towards the ends to draw the covering smooth.
Note: the end clamps are made of 1 and 1/2 inch PVC scheduled 40 pipe split in half and screwed to the end hoops to clamp the end plastic and covering plastic tightly to the end hoops.
This door is a piece of old rug that is heavy enough to cover the doorway but can be moved or tied aside for ventilation. This place will get hot in late spring.
“DUCK” tape, cloth tape, originally made by the DUCK tape company now generally called duct tape as it is often used in duct work. you will need a large roll and the good stuff is worth the extra price.
After the covering is done, add wood battens to the stapled and taped edges to make the coverings wind tight around the bottom edges.
Cheap 6mil poly will last until the hot weather makes it brittle, good quality greenhouse coverings will last 5 years and cost about 3 times the cheap stuff. These hoops are the original ones. It is best to bend the hoops in warm weather as they are very hard to bend when cold. pg
Update, February 2013 we removed the old disintegrating covering of polyethylene and covered with new “greenhouse covering” plastic. this should last several years. I am tired of replacing the covering after every summer.
As we are having problems with pocket gophers this added central planting bed is lined with 1/2 inch grid screen, galvanized steel. The rack will be used to provide support for crop to keep it off of the planting soil in the bed.
You can see that the new covering is much clearer than the old cheap polyethylene cover. It should also have a better transmittance of solar energy. We will see just how happy the plants are after a few months. pg

I received a Email letter from Defkalion this week.
The Defkalion corp. is the Greek group that was formerly working with A. Rossi a year ago.
When Rossi was first contacted, I was directed to their site as a contact point for obtaining a working device. The reply I got gave me a bad feeling about their views on conducting business, so I dropped that connection and considered warning Rossi of my bad feelings. Soon after that he ended the arrangement on his own.
The letter I received was to offer me a chance to invest or buy into the technology for only 40.5 million Euro for a license to manufacture and market their devices in a market area.They wanted to do only the R&D and sell factories. A quote from the letter.
“Defkalion will become the first global player in LENR using its proprietary technology to commercialize its new products and diversify into new Research & Development efforts for new applications. It plans to have a fully operational prototype ready by July 2012.”
I don’t believe that they have a working device yet as one of their earlier this year comments on their site said that they were testing 1,000s of combinations to discover the correct combination for the fuel cartridge. This was soon after Rossi refused to sell them his cartridges. They have made and canceled several dates that they would publicly demonstrate a working device.
I have seen nothing yet that would lead me to believe that Defkalion researchers have a grasp on the needs for a useful LENR reactor. pg
Stremmenos Letter of 19 December 2012, a must read to get a better understanding of the Rossi – Defkalion connection. pg
The primary coil driver set is assembled and ready to go. Left to right, Ganged condenser to drive the primary coil, spark gap attached to aluminum heat sink, chokes for suppression of back EMF to protect the neon transformer and most important part an OFF switch! see spark gap condenser test
The yellow wire is high tension ignition wire. This will allow me to operate the power supply 20 feet remotely from the very high voltage coils and any fields generated on the surface of the disk.
When a neon transformer is used it must be protected from the possibility of a high energy kick back from the magnetic collapse of the field in the secondary coil. A properly sized choke will easily pass current at the 60 cycle frequency of the transformer but strongly resist current at the high frequency of the primary LC circuit of about 18,000hz.The frequency of the LC tank circuit (inductance/capacitance) of the primary is caused by the charge / discharge of the capacitor through the spark gap and the coil.
The spark gap is to force the charge voltage from the transformer to rise to the break down point of the gap, current in the circuit has inertia so it will over discharge the capacitance and cause the current to reverse flow. This back and forth flow will continue until the voltage in the circuit is too low to cross the gap. If the circuit is designed correctly the gap will break down early enough in the 60 cycle to bridge the time that the transformer has low voltage from its’ 60 cycle output. This is electronics on a massive scale.

This is a Desert King Fig. A type of white canning/fresh eating fig, very fast grower and good producer. Figs like heavy clay soil and some water for best production. This 15 year old tree really likes it here. Fig trees are started from suckers that sprout from the roots. I have cloned near a hundred trees from this one, and they start producing fruit in 3 to 4 years! Great gift for anyone with the space. Great shade and fruit but very messy and draws birds. I cover it with a bird net in the early summer to protect the crop from birds. Then that must be replaced every year if you want fruit to enjoy and share. Because this is a fast grower it needs heavy pruning every winter, lots of brush to deal with! Other varieties grow much less but are slower to produce and produce less fruit. As they are slower they are later in the season to produce for an extended season.
For the production of fruit that can be easily harvested the fruiting area must be held down near the ground. As this is also a shade tree some compromise must be reached, In this case I want fruit 6 feet to 12 feet above the ground. Many fig trees produce 2 crops per year. The first, at bud points on last years growth in the early summer and the second, on the new growth in the late summer. So there must be a method to your pruning. Every year I need to push the growth point down because it progresses up with every years growth. Every winter pruning starts with cutting the top down to the needed height and then thinning out the interior to achieve the needed effect. Meanwhile keeping in mind the need to force new growth down lower for later years renewal.
If you look closely ( click on images ) there is old wood that is grey, and there is wood that is olive drab or gray green, that is last years wood and I leave 2 to 4 bud points for the early summer fig crop as well as a base for the next years growth. All other interior growth is cut away to thin growth points. You must remember not to get greedy, too many fruiting points will result in small fruit of poor quality. Too heavy pruning will result in heavy regrowth and little fruit. Fig trees are like apple trees You can’t kill them with too heavy pruning. So if you need to reclaim an old tree go for it, severely reshape the tree, it will reward you the second year.
Every year the grape vines must be cut back to the main growth arms to restore the balance between roots and vines. Remember grape vines can grow themselves to death. and too heavy fruiting will result in small poor quality fruit. There are many different styles of staking and trellising the main trunk of a grape vine but the pruning follows two styles, One for wine and one for table fruit. This will depend on the variety used. These are wine varieties and are fixed to a 3 wire fence trellis with plants every 4.5 feet.
The rows are pairs 4feet apart with 8feet between pairs. For wine production the plants are heavily cut back to a few buds that will grow into canes with a few bunches per cane. Wine grape vines produce grape bunches on the 1st, 2ed, 3rd node points of the new canes and you want a bunch per foot of trellis.
For eating grapes, they produce fruiting canes from the 1st, 2ed, 3rd cane nodes and fruit bunches from the 3,4&5 nodes so they must be pruned to canes and buds. Canes for this years fruiting and buds for next years canes. My eating grapes are grown on an overhead trellis.
To the left in this picture is an espaliered row of figs pruned low for handy fruit along the road way between the vineyard and the kitchen garden. pg
