Maria Delgado of Sunnyside replants grapes on the Green Valley slope of Snipes Mountain yesterday. She replaces the plant that is diseased, injured or old, by starting a plant from a branch of a nearby good plant. She places it inside of the milk carton, inserts it in the soft soil and then backfills. “The moisture causes the branch to start its own roots, and we have a replacement plant,” she said.
