We never know what kind of year we're going to have. It's either feast or famine.
I'm not bashful. I call it what it is, Fabulous.
We had to harvest our grapes a few days early.
The wasps showed up before the grapes were completely ripe. Wasps dessicate our grapes in only two days. We had to get up very early, while it was still dark. Wasps wait until the sun comes out before they leave their hiding places. They will come after you.
Juiced by hand, nothing added.
Raw Interlaken Grape juice.
Picked yesterday morning...
In the freezer this afternoon.
Peaches are next.
I knew it would break...too many peaches for a young tree.
These peaches will be ripe in about a week.
Will share with friends...they get the pleasure of picking their own. Did I tell you that I love picking fruit, high up on a ladder looking at the blue sky and the puffy, white clouds.
We also have two older peach trees, "Early Albertas". They always ripen early.
Early Albertas are cling free and easy to peel and they have a most superior flavor...in other words they are the perfect peach.
Late grapes (if they survive) will become golden raisins.
Papaver Somniferum still blooming in my garden. I'm saving seeds.
If you're in the neighborhood. Stop by. The ladder is leaning up against the tree.
Here I share with you my obsession with Italian Renaissance Ceramics. I decided that painting them would not be so difficult. So I set about learning. My blog is about living the simple country life, tales from our travels and, of course, my hand painted ceramics.
