The Grapes of Wrath

Pops would never forgive me if I didn't show you these. A newcomer to grape growing, George has finally produced a wonderful crop. The vine itself was very nearly destroyed by the recent unseasonal winds but the stuff inside glass has produced a fine eating grape. See pic.
Pops offering me grapes as I boarded out the roof... I felt like Emperor Nero!

The newest LTF crop

So there we have it, the roof is theoretically finished (need a real deluge to test it) and the grapes are coming thick and fast. These from under glass are ready first but there's about 30 other bunches maturing slowly outside on the exposed vine. Hopefully they'll survive the weather and perhaps create the first LTF vintage?


  1. Great pics, we need some of those grapes! Keep up the good work.

  2. Hey, don't go wishing for deluges. They'll come soon enough. Great work on the roof, by the way. And the blog!
