Heading down the path to our wild grapes. We had heard one year that you wait until after the first frost. But last year when we picked them after the first frost they were all shrivelled up. This year we just picked them when they looked ripe, frost or no frost. They are quite tart for eating purposes but made really good jelly! Most of the grapevines were wound up through the apple trees. Sam Merry showing his bag of grapes. Galadriel climbing up the tree to get to the grapes. Why are all the good grapes way up hight?
