I want to grow a few varieties of grapes next to my back deck which has a arbor built in. I have a well close to the back deck and im not sure if it could cause problems and would like some advice. I live in North West Indiana by the great lakes in zone 5a.
Im thinking about growing three varieties of different colored wine grapes for cold and disease resistance but if any hardy table grapes exist I would also consider those. I don't drink wine and would rather eat some and let the birds enjoy the rest. So far my research leads me to Somerset seedless for a red variety that you can eat but im having trouble finding a white and purple variety that's hardy and edible. Im including pictures and thanks for any help. Im prepping the area this year to plant in spring along with some other plants.
I have the wild grapes 4 feet from my well, shades the chicken coop and gives the bucks a snack. No problems. Can't imagine how it could. My well is cased, I think. But everyone around here ends up with just about everything taking root everywhere by the wells too trees bushes vines
out in the garden

Thanks, makes me feel better about the well. Any advice on good varieties with different colored grapes? Would three vines be enough to cover the arbor?
