Grapes

A picture of our grapes.  They look like they will be plentiful this year.  When we bought these vines several years ago, we thought we were buying purple concord grapes, however they are green.  They first year we almost didn’t get any because we kept waiting on them to turn purple.  They are very good, though.  We just had to adjust to grape jelly not being purple.  I am thinking about making grape juice this year.  I have no experience with it though.  All I’ve ever done with our grapes is make jelly but a family can only eat so much jelly.  If anyone is familar with making juice, I would appreciate any advice you can give.  I am thinking about purchasing a steamer/juicer for this but I am not sure it would be worth it.  What do you all think? 

It was extremely hot here yesterday.  When we went to bed last night it was 90 degrees in our bedroom.  When we got up this morning about 6:00  it had cooled down to 82 in our room, thats still pretty warm.  Hopefully, today will not be as hot but it is what it is.   Tomorrow our bible study will meet at Wanda’s house.  She has air conditioning. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.

Apple Blossoms

Our apple tree is blooming.  Isn’t it pretty!  We are not sure what type of apples these are.  The tree was here when we came.  However they are very good apples.  The tree blooms very early though and usually gets caught in the frost.  I fear this will happen this year.  Temperatures tonight will be in the upper 20’s.  We have had a very hard wind for 2 days now so of course it feels much colder.  Temperature now is about 50 with a wind chill of about 40.  YUCK!  I guess this is what we call “dogwood winter” as the dogwoods are blooming now.  Warmer temps are on the way though.  Yeah!

My bouquet of flowers for the ladies today.  I love to have fresh flowers out when they come.  Makes the room look so much more cheerful.  We all enjoyed these today.  Forsythia and spirea.  Class went very well.  Two ladies could not come.  We missed you, Wanda and Vicki.  I know I have said this many times, but this really is a good study.  She takes it nice and slow so you get to just let it all sink in.  I like that.  I better get started on supper.  Take care  and God bless.
