The wrath of the grapes

We’re approaching that time of the year again.

The grapes have been forming and now we have to see whether we get enough sun to ripen them.

This year so far, everything is looking promising. We had plenty of rain during the growing season… and the grapes look pretty well so far. No nasties like mildew or rot.

If we do get a decent crop, I might have another go at making wine. My last attempt came out tasting not quite entirely unlike wine… though it never cleared properly, so I only use it for cooking. Maybe this year I’ll manage to get it right. Watch this space…
