    Have a Grape Day!

    Finally got around to trimming back the weeds. I forgot about the grapes I planted 4-5 years ago...I planted Concord (Dark Blue and Purple) and Niagaras (Green). And the birds did not get them yet...

    They are soooo delicious, compared to the bigger "rubber-tasting" water-grapes in the supermarket, grown in California warehouses. I think in Russia, you have more "natural" grapes, not the big "rubber grapes"?

    Planning to put a mannequin blonde girl on the rubber-tire "swing" dangling from the tree (up and left from the deer).

    The girl at my church likes "frozen grapes." Put them in the freezer, then later, snack on them, like grape-flavored ice. Schmeckt вкусные!

    My grapes have started to come through, last year someone said the plant was dead, stuck it in the ground, built a trellis, it is now going great guns and offers a lot of shade

    My "grape diet" plan/schedule is to eat nothing but grapes for 3 days. Once I even got through 2 days before getting a pizza (I was in New York, where the Italians make the delizioso

    favoloso pizza)...
