Aren't they colossal? That's a clementine thrown into the bunch just so you can get some perspective of the size of those grapes!
They came from seeds of some grapes left on a property that stayed deserted for quite some time. My husband planted the seeds here on our farm, cared for the vines and now, several years later, look at the harvest! The grapes seem to be of the Concord variety and are very sweet and juicy. But, that's my husband. He has a green thumb that just won't quit and can almost put a dead stick into the ground and get a beautiful tree from it!
We had such a bountiful harvest of these beauties that my husband decided to try wine making again after many years. In the past, he's made some pretty good wine and we're hoping this batch will be good also.
The hard part is having to wait for it!
