Grapes and grapes!

on February 5, 2013

The previous weekend saw the picking out our first decent crop of tomatoes.  In this case the in-appropriately named Christmas grape,  cause it’s February. They were nonetheless lovely,  devoured in earnest after being drenched with sherry vinegar and served with a blacked chorizo. On a more grape related note,  our mystery red grapes are just about ready to harvest.   A family of blackbirds is nesting in the vine,  it’s going to be race to see who wins out! Last year wine making was a mixed success, the plum wine was ace (another post coming on that),  but the red wine was pretty putrid.    Better luck this year! Some pictures. Xmas grapes (apparently)
