Good year for grapes

Sunday 16 August, 2015 by Uncle Spike

We always get a good crop from these black grapes – they come from a hardy and strong vine. Mostly we use them for juice, freezing down bottles of the stuff for a healthy drink any time of the year.

But the surprise this year seems to be the sweet white grapes; looks like we might actually have some! Year upon year they have failed. But not this season. I reckon the prolonged rains and cooler summer are just what they’ve been waiting for.

And even the two new vines planted to cover the entrance to the garage are bearing fruit for the first time this year! Hopefully these will be large white seedless grapes 🙂
