One of this years success stories.


One of this years resounding successes is the Grapevine in the polytunnel.  After looking after it for three years I have finally got a bumper crop of juicy green grapes.  Lovely Hubby is always grabbing a bunch when he passes and eating them like sweets while he works on the tractor (yes, it's in bits again!!).


 

The only downside to it is that it really has taken over the polytunnel and is still growing.  I stand up from weeding to be tapped on the head by yet another branch that has grown two foot overnight and is dangling menacingly overhead.


Oh, another downside......the wasps!! Hundreds seem to come in to feast on the fallen grapes , so I've made the decision to snip off all the remaining bunches, some for LH to munch on, some to be squished into grape juice and the rest as a treat for the chickens.


Other plants running rampant in the polytunnel at the moment.......Tomatoes, Aubergines and Chilli Peppers.  All the above were turned into a delicious sauce last night for our tea served with Spicy Cous Cous and Peppered Mackerel for LH.  Yummy!!
