Surprise late harvest!
I was down in the pasture yesterday spreading around some chicken manure in approach of a coming rainstorm when I found these late harvest red grapes, in perfect condition and ready for picking, two months after harvest officially ended. They are super-sweet, and a perfect end to the 2014 growing season. I have no idea when these appeared but am very glad I found them before the freeze sets in.
Sometimes nature gives us a bad surprise -- gophers, disease, or other damage. And sometimes, she gives us a sweet treat long after we thought the season was over and done with.
