We are fortunate crows and grackles can't hover like humming birds.

It is time to harvest the grapes this week. We managed to keep some of the sweet and juicy morsels from the birds.

They look lovely. I came home from school so often as a child to a sink full of grapes to help my mother prepare for turning to grape juice. They made me itch so. But one day I lifted my hands and my arms were a red rash. Then my lips swelled. I was relieved of grape duty. This was the forties; no one was allergic to anything, especially work.
These grapes look like the old Scuppernong natives, but I suspect they are Concords, their descendants. Yum yum.
Oh yum, these grapes look delicious :)
Are you allergic to grapes today, Joanne?
Grapes are a new crop for us. I did not know anyone who grew them in Newfoundland, other than in a green house.
I am not sure what they are but the are delicious.
They really are, Tabor.
Ann, that they are! And organic!
How generous of the birds to leave you a few. And how cunning. They want you to keep them there for next year - where they will again get first pick...
I may use a net over the plant next year, EC. I have been the human scarecrow this year but the birds watch for me to drive down the road. Then they have a feast.
They sure do look delicious! Glad you were able to salvage a few for yourself. :-)
Juicing is next, Jan.
Wow---are these growing outdoors? They look very yummy. Now I have to go out to our greenhouse and pick a bunch to munch on! haha
Yes, they are outdoors but the crows love them. I became a witch trying to shoo them away for the last six weeks.
Looks like you've done a good job of protecting the grapes Marie, it's the same here in Australia, the birds love the fruit. We had quite a few fruit trees when we first started the garden, now just a lime and mango tree ☺
que bela parreira e uvas deliciosas.
Thank you, P.
It was a fight to the finish with the crows, PDP.
it is always hard to save these juicy friuts from birds specially crow spoil them as i used to see back in my native village.
they look ready to get fresh juice dear Marie!
