Grapes of Wrath
Wanna see what we did last night? Too bad. I forgot to take the camera! :S Actually, hubby took a shot with his cell phone... so, this is as good as it gets....
Hubby works with a guy who said that we could come and pick a few grapes from his vineyard! It was such a fun experience for all of us! When we lived in Oregon there were places that grew grapes, but they weren't table grapes, they were wine grapes. These are all table grapes. They won't actually harvest till next week, but there were a few ready now. And they taste so GOOD!! So yummy and crisp... and it was so weird to pull them off of stems that were still GREEN! Bright, vibrant, wonderful green! Not dead, dark, old brown.
It was a really great night. It was almost more that Baby Girl could take walking through the grapes and not eating them as fast as she could. I've let her eat quite a few today... which means I'll probably pay for it tomorrow!

LOVE LOVE the smell of grapes on the vine! The best is driving in Sept with the windows down and going by a vineyard. DIVINE.

This year is not on my rotation for canning grape juice, but watch out for next year.
