Last Sweet Taste of Summer

Well over twenty years ago a neighbor (actually neighbors) helped us plant our little vineyard by the entrance to our storage room. One neighbor did the shopping and choosing the grape vines, and another helped or did most of the actual planting.  During the first few years they were watered, and since then besides periodic, less an annual trimming/pruning, all do is enjoy G-d's generosity, the most delicious grapes imaginable.  Of course, being that I don't treat them with any sort of chemicals they are 100% totally organic.  And since they aren't irrigated besides the rain, they have an enviable concentrated sweetness.

Our grapes ripen pretty late in the summer, so we must be patient before eating, noshing and harvesting.  There aren't enough left to really harvest and feast off of, but if you look carefully, you'll find these natural, gift from G-d candies.

Thanks to G-d for His generosity and blessings.

Have a wonderful, fulfilling, inspiring and healthy week.

No matter how much ripens, it is a blessing. Yes, thanks to G-d.
