The vines are growing more vigorously that I had thought they would. I have started to remove over half of the new shoots that are emerging from the trunks, so that the available energy in the vine can be concentrated towards growing about three shoots quickly and strongly. Since, I am leaving for a week, I need to make sure these guys are going to be ready to go without my attention. Before the pruning

Shooting up like crazy
