Not quite raisins

But I think my Black Monuka grapes are ripening earlier than usual. Gee could it be the heat? We have grapes that wrap our back porch, keeps it cool. Not cool enought to hang out back there but the illusion of coolness. I use them for snacking and drying for raisins. YUM!

    As a born-and-bred Midwesterner, I have to ask: are home-made grapes tastier/juicer than the ones from the store? It would stand to reason, since everything else home-grown/home-made is better than what is on the grocer’s shelves. But I’d like a first-hand report.

    Great socks, and I LOVE that second grape photo. My grandparents grew grapes when I was a kid, and it really brings back memories to see them.

    The grapes are absolutely gorgeous! Are they hard to grow and maintain? Any news on the cruise (hey, that rhymes) or possible Portland yarn crawl? Hope you’re enjoying a blissfully quiet Sunday.
