Tomato Soup & Grape Harvest



Today: chopping tomatoes, simmering soup, picking a heavy bag full of delectably scented grapes for jelly. Tonight: canning soup. Tomorrow: making jelly, if nothing goes awry. Who can say? All I know is that my tomato-basil-grape-scented kitchen SMELLS AMAZING.


Ripe Grapes!

Our green Concord grapes are ripe! Until we moved here, I didn’t even know Concord grapes could be green. But here they are. Deliciously sweet, with that distinctive Concord flavor. They’re slightly translucent and exquisitely juicy. When we step out our back door onto our stone patio, the sweet scent wafts from the arbor like a soft breeze from Heaven. Plans: grape jelly and wine. Stay tuned!
