Bumbles in the azaleas
I noticed this weekend that the grapes are forming flowers. Last year we got a handful - maybe 6 or 8 grapes from the baby vine. This year there are flowers on every tip! If they all turn into grapes we will have enough to eat and dry and maybe even juice. Take my word for it - homemade raisins are incredible!
Every year the fruit trees, bushes, vines get larger and I am astonished by them. While I'm busy doing other things, they are growing. Despite forgetting to water, or fertilize or spray they keep trucking along on their own timeline. And when I do remember to water and fertilize and spray, they reward me with yummy stuff.
