Nearly time for the grape harvest…


Isn’t this amazing?  The view from the bathroom window…


This is on the Welsh borders – not the sunny slopes of France or Italy… 🙂

… maybe not enough for wine but theres plenty more lower down the vine… it would be wonderful if they all ripened… the purple ones taste nice already.

Happy days…

  1. Oh dear – I am envious of your grapes. I pruned our vine because the leaves were shading the windows and the result was a disaster! Must read up on pruning time…..

    • Hi Jenni – I pruned (or rather hacked) back this vine the year before last almost down to the ground… and last year I was amazed to get ONE bunch of grapes – we had never had any before and the vine was here before we moved in – 11 years ago. So, I certainly didn’t expect to get any grapes this year – I am amazed… I’m going to be looking up how to prune it now! Cheers, Helen x
