I am glad my grape story rang some bells for you. Thanks for the kind words, the funny cartoon "not under my roof" and the pizza story. What a nice way to start my day. 

Well, I'm off to the garden, see you later. alligator.

Joan, thank you for sharing that delicious part of your life (in your pictures too)! I wish I could drive for only a couple of hours to meet the amazing, caring, resilient, strong, imaginative woman behind all your stories and ideas and rants and thoughts.

Carl, thanks for the laugh... reminds me of sex educator Al Vernacchio's recommendation, which I've shared in other parts of A|N, to replace the baseball metaphor (first base, second base, scoring, etc.) with pizza. Among other things, nobody consigns you to hell for liking pineapple, spam, and M&Ms on your pizza!

Video of Mr. Vernacchio's TED talk: "Sex needs a new metaphor. Here's one..."

A good complementary article: "To Slide or to Slice? Finding a Positive Sexual Metaphor"

I made wine from wild grapes two years ago. Haven't seen any since then. :(    My white grape arbor didn't produce any fruits either this year. I waiting for my newly planted Concord to mature.

Joan, your kitchen seems to be about the same size as mine. Amazing what one can do with limited space, and unlimited imagination.

What a wonderful resource, Joan.  I had homemade concord grape jelly earlier this month that my bother-in-law's mother made from picked grapes up in Minnesota.

I have two Concord grapevines that I dug from my grandparents Denoo's place on the Salmon River, at Lucile, Idaho, near Riggins. The grapes grow up over a deck on the south side of my house. Cary prunes them every year so they will bear a small amount of grapes, and they still produce pounds and pounds of the best Concord grapes I have ever eaten. 

I will probably freeze about 8 or 10 of these large bowls of grapes processed into grape juice.  

Here is my wee little kitchen during the washing stage. 

The west end of my deck with Concord grapes that came from vines my grandmother Denoo grew at Lucile, Idaho. They have been here for 40 years.

Joan, are you speaking about crushed grapes, the kind that come fermented in a bottle? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 28, 2014 at 11:20am

Grapes, grapes, grapes, on the wall, the cupboards, the floor, in my hair, on my clothes, on my elbows. I love this time of year.
