This mornings harvest and other ramblings.
I got up early to beat the birds, although there aren't as many now, .177 seems to be working. I picked a gallon from my Celeste and had a feast on them. They go great after a couple of cups of coffee and before breakfast. Here is a picture of what was left after I had my fun. Actually, I had taken pictures before I ate any but while looking for them to post, the pictures were not on my card.
I also got a treat from some purple grapes also. These used to be grown by my Dad years ago. I had started myself a vine and planted it down the bayou where it got neglected when we move out. 3 years ago, I came upon a small vine with grape like leaves growing in the grass near where the vine had been growing. Taking a chance that it might be the same one and not a wild grape, I air layered a portion of it. I cut it off the mother in the fall and planted it where Dad had his originally. Now it's bearing beautifully and bountifully, happy to be back home.
I also have some green ones that are just getting ripe. Another week and I be swimming in grapes.
Grapes are good, but figs are GREAT.
