This drink is called 《must》from the Latin 《vinum mustum》meaning young wine. It's basically grape juice. 🍇 It's the only kind I like. It's super delicious with zero sugar and additives.

A Bunch Of Grapes
There is certainly a joy living near one of the most famous wine regions in the world. A trip to the vineyards is certainly one of them.
I captured these not too far off from the harvest season at one of the local wineries. I really loved the complimentary colors of the green leaves and the deep blue/purple of the grapes.

Northern #Michigan is home to dozens of wineries and is a 'wine tourism' destination for people across the country.
This year, #drought over the summer stressed the grape vines, which leads to excellent fruit quality and fabulous #wine.

The last jar for this season of grapes. It'll be a good while before it fills but that's ok. It'll be worth it and I can clean up the rest of the kitchen while I wait. I like doing this job. Maybe one day I will actually graduate to proper processing/canning but for our purposes, this works just fine. #grapes #food #canning #Preserving #localfood #homemade
And so it behind again. The last of the concorde grapes 🍇 have been picked. Another 5 gallon pail. 🪣 Should make eight 1L jars or so. No play by play tonight though. If you'd like to see the process, check out the full thread from a few nights ago linked below. :)

Beautiful Spanish alley covered with grape vines
1/ Thread A nice person came over today and picked some of the (Concorde) grapes. This is probably about 1/3rd of the total on the vines. 5Gal 🪣 +
Time to start making juice before the fruit flies get at them!
We do have healthy populations of raccoons, squirrels, and rabbits, but we don't usually see deer, although they are just across the way in the cemetery/golf course. We do see coyote and foxes, but I don't think they're that fond of grapes, despite what we learned from Aesop's fables.
But we also get the Minneapolis Mega-Murder stopping by fairly frequently, so I think that it is most likely crows.

The wild grapes are getting ripe. I don't know what species this is, but they have pea-sized fruit and they're EVERYWHERE. It's not unusual at all to find thigh-thick vines climbing into tall trees. The fruit has a sour-and-vegetable taste when fresh, but we've made it into fruit leather in the past and that's very grapey and delicious.
Produce News: "Unfavorable weather plaguing suppliers" Navigating hurricane season can be tricky for growers as Mother Nature continues to have her way with the nation's crops. Hurricane Hilary was “devastating and heartbreaking,” according to Kathleen Nave, president of the California Table Grape Commission, which expects California to produce fewer than 75 million 19-pound boxes for the first time since 1994. #grapes #supplychain #food #weather https://theproducenews.com/headlines/trendspotting-unfavorable-weather-plaguing-suppliers?sfmc_id=5021193&utm_campaign=Sept%2011%20PM%20daily%202023&utm_id=657184&utm_medium=mastodon&utm_source=TPN&utm_term=Big
Insufficient pulp to #grapes ratio for grape rollup recipe #1. Going to try both pulp and juice.
Grape juice experiment with home grown Dornfelder grapes.
The first mash is quite a lot of effort but ok once you've burst most of the grapes. Simmering for 10 mins or so makes the 2nd mash much easier.
It's a great colour but I haven't tasted it yet as it's still cooling down at the moment.
Need to buy Mrs D a new wooden spoon as that one's purple now 😄

I checked the OG Thompson seedless grape vine. Growing good, found 1 kg / 2 lbs of grapes to pick. They were 10 and 15 ft up in the tree. The California quail seem to have ate the few bunches that were down low.
It's growing about 50 ft or more up in an old Lombardy poplar tree. The lower part has a mulberry in it that needs pruned to a stub again.
The same grape you buy in the store but those are blossom thinned so grow bigger. Not thinned makes raisins.
Shuimo painting or ink wash technic is a type of brush painting that uses black ink, as used in calligraphy, in different concentrations.
I used it for a pair of grape paintings.
The second of my pair of grapes.
The paintingstyle does not put high importance on a precise depiction of a real object. As in Calligraphy, the brushstroke in Chinese ink brush painting is less a means of applying ink than an emotional statement.
Some 'little pink' grapes getting ripe. Starts from the 100 year old vine that have a mulberry tree to grow up into. The small ones have no seeds, normal sized ones have seeds. I suspect it's a pollination thing that determines the seed. Last 10 years there's been more seeded ones so probably one of the volunteer vines around is a pollinator for it. Just a wild guess.
Wishing you a wonderful Lughnasadh/Lammas and a gorgeous beginning to the harvest season! #lughnasadh #lammas #bread #grains #harvest #harvestfestival #corn #apples #grapes #pears #pigs #oak #sunflowers #farm #celtic #art

Good morning. 🌄🌄🌄
As a teenager, I lived in a small California town in the San Joaquin Valley. At least during most of my high school years, late 60s and early 70s. The town and the area were surrounded by peach orchards and green grape vineyards. A series of canals fed the surrounding farmland. On lazy summer days, my friends and I would pile in my 1954 Chevrolet Station wagon and drive out on a canal bank and go swimming. Usually at a spot with a spill over that we called the falls. One of our things was to shoot the falls, which was incredibly reckless. This spot was adjacent to a vineyard and if the grapes were ripe, we would get a bunch of grapes and sit on the bank and enjoy them. They were the best tasting grapes and to this day, I judge all grapes based on those.
"You cannot eat a cluster of grapes at once, but it is very easy if you eat them one by one." - Jacques Roumain
At the same time I trying to answer what is #time?
It will be a pleasure to meet you all!
A Bunch Of Grapes
There is certainly a joy living near one of the most famous wine tasting areas in the world. A trip to the vineyards is certainly one of them.
There are a number of wineries where my wife and feel like home at. I have got to know a number of wine makers over the years and have been given the opportunity to photograph a few vineyards unfettered.

Red Wine Grapes - Painterly
I love being 30 minutes to downtown Napa it's really hard to beat. I love to go wine tasting and taking in the atmosphere of Napa Valley.
I captured a series of images of some red wine grapes hanging on the vine very close to harvest time. In this image I applied a painterly effect to this image to give it a more classic look.

Grapes On The Vine
Living within a stones throw from California's famous Napa valley certainly has it's advantages.
I do prefer the late summer and fall for shooting any images at the wineries as the grape vines are full of foilage and bursting with fruit and color.

#Israel the origin of the world's grapevines?
domestication of grapes began 11K ya in Israel & Caucasus
“The Israeli wild grapevines were found to be the source of domestication for all the cultivated group of table grapes"
“This initial group of grapevine varieties then were dispersed to eastern and western Europe, to form most of the known winegrapes”
