Nope, it's not a sickness, it's grapes. Wild grapes, that is.
Mustang grapes are all over my fence this year. The birds have been munching on them for a couple of weeks so my Cowboy suggested that I really needed to get out there before all was lost.
Among the grapes are lizards, spiders, a snake or two & my favorite.....wasps!!
I dawned my hunting gear (minus the shotgun), a pair of shears and some wasp spray to harvest the grapes.
Here's how much I've cut off so far. I'll be canning jelly & my Cowboy wants to dabble in some wine.....we'll have to see if that pans out.
Now I've picked all the stems off & will pour sugar over top & allow to sit over night. I'll add a little water and Pectin and pretty soon we'll have grape jelly!!
There are tons of wonderful jelly recipes on the Internet to try out, this is just one of many.
