Grape Harvest

This year's grapes have proven to be bountiful - both the tiny tangy wild grapes we have growing through a tangle of hops vines on the back porch, and the large sweet dark blue garden grapes that are clinging from the arbour at the back of our main garden.  The heavy pruning seemed to do the trick, offering both light and air circulation to our grape arbours.  I am trying to save most of the grapes for making jelly and juice, but it's next to impossible to walk past the vines without sampling a few of the tantelizing grapes, hoping that maybe this time they will be perfectly ripe.  And any grapes that fall to the ground do not go to waste, as the hens love these fresh sweet treats.
