Harvest Time

Glorious Grapes! This year the grapes seem sweeter than ever before!

Jim harvested a big batch and cooked them down to juice. (Note the last of the tomatoes sitting on the counter to ripen. Salsa, anyone?)

Most of the juice will go into smoothies, although some grape syrup may be in the works too. Our favorite neighbor, Nigel, got the leftover skins and seeds. Mmmmm….

Yummmmmm! I'll take some of that syrup on one of Jim's famous waffles! Can't wait!

I love that first photo of the grape clusters. It it just gorgeous. What type are they?

Sorry, Aiyana, but I don't know the variety of that grape. I bought it at a little neighborhood greenhouse and it was simply listed as "purple table grape". It was an inexpensive experiment that was wildly successful!
