We were able to harvest some grapes before the
stupid pesky birds & wasps got them all.
This was my first time bottling grape juice.
I was able to borrow a steam juicer, which made the process much easier!
I only got 6 quarts, but that's not too bad considering our luck with the rest of our fruit this year.
With the exception of the apricots, of course.
Hopefully peaches will be next.
Not from our tree...
We only had a few peaches, because the apricot tree has kind of overpowered the peach tree.
In fact, the apricots were larger than the peaches.
Our plan is to prune everything back this year and hopefully have a better crop next year.
(For the birds to eat, of course).
