First Fields of Green harvest!

The wild grapes are ripening!

   
    
They are probably mustang grapes, and are extremely acidic. I licked the flesh of one grape and my mouth stung for a couple minutes! I should have worn latex gloves while sorting them, too. My hands itched for an hour after this process was over. 

Gotta love the food mill attachment for my KitchenAid mixer. It processed all the grapes no problem. 

 
  

We got just over a quart of juice from my first picking.
    

Of course I had the most adorable help in the world. 
   

I’m so grateful for a harvest that I just had to gather. No composting or tilling or planting or watering or weeding. Just picking.
