A Few Good Grapes


Concord Grapes

Concord Grapes

The last two years, have been brutal for grape production. I’m not sure if it is something I’m doing wrong or if the weather is too blame. Last year all of the grapes withered before they began to turn purple, and this year, there were not many actual grapes. I’m thankfull for the bunch above though, because it’s at least an improvement from last year. The vines have grown out of control on the trellis by the small creek, and I need to spend a day retraining them to grow up the trellis, rather then every other direction. 

 These vines were planted about five years ago. When they were placed in the ground, they were about the same size as the small plants I’ve been cloning the last two years. So I can expect five years of growth before the first grapes are produced from my little clones.

All in all, Even though there are few, they taste Great !

    As concords practically grow wild in this part of the world, I did a lot of scavenging of them this season, and found the most delicious recipe (if you ever get enough grapes to make it!)

    REALLY REALLY tasty. It’s what I wanted mulled wine to taste like but it failed to. 😛
