Grapes Galore

The fruits of my labour have finally been tasted. The grapes growing on the vine in the greenhouse were picked today and taste fantastic. Those of you familiar with the blog may remember what they were like earlier in the year looking like small full stops!
This was the first year for the vine and to produce a bunch of grapes in the first season is seemingly quite unusual. Pam did suggest making some wine with them but we decided that we would be lucky if we even got one sip from the small amount of grapes. However that is the target for next year.
The tomato plants have produced literally hundreds of tomatoes this season and we are using them for all of the breakfasts just now. This is definitely the best crop that we have had and so rewarding.
