Hi everyone. Happy Thursday to you.
It is time once again for Rain's Art and Dinner Date.
I'm not sure this counts as dinner, but last week I picked 4 pounds of grapes off my grape plant. I was excited to get this many because of the drought we have. I'm right on the border of moderate drought to abnormally dry, and I'm not exactly sure which one applies to my yard. The rain has been hit or miss this summer, and I think more miss than hit.
Last year when my grapes were ripening, I decided to give them a couple more days to let some of the green ones turn, but when I went back they had all dried up. Like overnight. It was weird, and also frustrating because it meant I couldn't make any grape jelly. That's why this year when the majority of the grapes had turned, I picked them. I ate a few, and they had a nice tart flavor.
