Wild grapes...

Had a 'bumper' harvest from the wild grapes in our property...
All in all, 2.2 kilograms... whoopee...
This, compared to last year when I could hardly get any harvest...
Perhaps there is some truth in plants alternating between bumper harvest and poor harvest... no?
There is absolutely no need to take care of them...
All I did was to prune them down, and rather brutally at that too...
The fruits are just about 5 millimeters in diameter...
There is little flesh in them...
And the best way to enjoy them, I thought, was to turn them into juice...
Managed to make about 12 liters of delicious wild grape juice from them...
No additives of any kind... and with each sip, hmmm, the feeling of pure delight...
