Grapes, part II

This was a delightful surprise yesterday. It looks like we'll be harvesting grapes - Concords, from the look and taste - this year. We have lived in this house for over eight years, and never once have we seen ripe grapes on these vines. We'll need to move fast so we can get them picked before the birds make a feast of them (as I suspect has happened in past years).

2 people have weighed in:

Have you considered branching out from the beer-making into wine-making?

Alison held forth

Maybe, if we can figure out what sort of wine to make from Concords. Otherwise, it'll be table grapes, juice, and possibly a grape sorbet.
