Can you pick out the two clusters I ended up snipping off this vine?
After struggling to produce fruit on our young and under-vigorous vines last year, this year it really is painful to remove these beautiful, perfect, large clusters of grapes. So I decided to put the riper ones cut from the over-abundant vines to use and make some Pinot Noir jelly from the juice. The juice is now in the fridge. I'm too busy to make the jelly right now though. Hopefully I will get to it before it starts to ferment.
And I am soo glad.... we spent all that time, energy and money putting up all that netting that will keep those cute little birds from feeding on our crop!
