Grape harvest

We harvested nine gallons of concord grapes today. They're delicious. We can't wait to taste the wine that they'll become. This year we're going to give them to Kyle's coworker Jim Thomas to make the wine for us, and we'll just score a couple of bottles. But after harvesting them and seeeing just how many we get from one vine, we're inspired to possibly try making our own next year. We have a second grape vine that didn't produce any grapes this year, but should do well next year.

that's so cool--we make a few batches of wine every year, mostly from other fruits, but we have nowhere to get good grapes around here! you'll have to let us know how the wine comes out (in about 7 months!)
