late grapes

Working out in the garden today, trying to complete my list. I looked at the grapevine, and remembered that I had left one cluster on the vine, just to see what would happen. I had forgotten about it for over a month. To my great satisfaction it was still there, and the grapes: delicious!

In my mind, this is part of what growing your own food is all about: a quiet moment out in the garden, taking a break from the work, and enjoying a bunch of grapes grown a few feet away. Then, back to work, with the taste still lingering.

I'm a condo owner across the street. While we have no real space for a plot, I will enjoy seeing yours develop.
Your work on the house and the yard are much appreciated.I'm passing along your concept to my daughter in Oakland, California.
