Grapes [Aug. 24th, 2018|09:09 am]
Tony Grist
 My mother grew grapes to make wine which wasn't always disgusting. The wine-making finished a long time ago but the vines are still there- and the developing grapes are looking plumper than usual. That'll be down to the heatwave.  Perhaps they'll be sweeter too.  Matthew suggests freezing them and eating them through the winter. I don't normally pick them because they're only just palatable but this year I might.

Yes, here in Spain they say that sun and heat create the sugar in the grapes.

That sounds right to me.

Our grapes never grow very big or very sweet- but the South of England has many commercial vineyards so there must be varieties that thrive in our not so very warm climate.

They could be quite sweet then.
