Plump, Juicy Garden-Fresh Grapes

I’m so excited – my grapes are turning into plump juicy fruit!

Before I left on vacation, I covered my grape vines with netting to to keep the birds away. When I returned I was a little worried when I saw how brown all the leaves were. I’m not sure if they weren’t getting enough water, if the net is restricting their growth, or if it’s just too darn hot!

I quickly picked a bunch and shared them with the kids. They are sweet and delicious! Look how much bigger they’ve gotten in just a few weeks! I’ll leave a few on the vines and harvest some every day to see if they get even bigger.

I call this a resounding success! Now I have high hopes for my 2 little apples growing on my tree.
