Viva Vitis!

I was out harvesting harvesting wild grapes and black walnuts with friends on Sunday.
The grapes are prolific this year. The area we were in was full of them.

The clusters were nice and juicy! And tart!

I'm using the grapes I picked for wild grape juice. I'll post about that process later this week, but you can read about how Sam Thayer does it here.

When harvesting wild grapes, be sure you don't confuse them with Virginia Creeper (the small berries with the red stems in the back of this pic) or Canada Moonseed.
