Grapes still awaiting the birds!


Grapes still awaiting the birds!

Apart from a Pigeon and a Blackbird these are largely being ignored by the birds. The Starlings are usually the first to eat them.

No Amy they are full of pips and not too sweet. I once made Grape juice with them but it really wasn't worth the effort!

Chris, it looks so pretty when the leaves turn to their Autumnal reds and golds.

Amy, that did make me smile!

Your vines look amazing, Shirley! How fabulous those grapes look!!!! It’s a real pity they aren’t so tasty..:-(
Never mind, the birds will thoroughly enjoy them!!!

Thanks Kate, the vine was planted in 2010 and the builder who made the pergola said that'll never grow there!!

We used to grow the same ones..all pips but very sweet..made grape juice which was very tasty, but time consuming.....our neighbours used to eat them pips and all....

Dotty, I only ever made grape juice with them the one time ... too much effort for too little juice!
