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.

A Bunch Of Grapes

This is an image of a bunch of grapes hanging from a grapevine in a vineyard in Napa Valley. 
The grapes hang off of a brown stem to the right of the bunch. The grapes themselves are a dark blue/purple color and are close to being ready for harvest. 
The leaves of the vine are a lush green. Behind the grapes is a branch of the vine that is old and twisted.

It’s #autumn, it’s getting cooler and it’s harvest time. Here’s a batch of #grapes in a 5-litre bucket. I’d say it’s about 20% of the total we’ve had this year. On the negative side, we didn’t get too many tomatoes this year.

Last week, we've harvested buckets full of grapes, most of which we turned into a delicious and sweet juice. No extra sugar needed!

The grapes we left hanging on the vine were quickly and gratefully eaten by a flock of starlings.

Four images of grapes. The first one shows a grapevine full of dark blue grapes. The second shows a large bucket full of them. In the third, they've been washed and then put into a pan and brought to a boil. After sieving, the final images shows a can and a glass full of a dark purple and very tasty grape juice.

2 densely pack purple bunches of red grapes sit in a white ceramic bowl on a wooden kitchen table.

12.5 gallons of picked grapes = 20 1 Litre jars* of juice done.

#homemade #grapes #canning

20 jars of juice are lined up on a wooden table. 12 are in a cardboard box, all but two are labeled "Grape Juice 2023. 8 more jars are on a cooling rack with no labels yet.

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

A 1/3rd full clear 1L mason jar stands atop a blue bowl that is upside down. The juice drips quickly from the silver spigot at the end of the clear tube.

ok, just one video. Cuz I love it when the jars fill. First jar up! 🔊 #juicing #juice #grapes #cooking

The video starts with the jar standing atop a round bowl which is upside down inside another bowl. The juice is flowing out of a small spigot at the end of a clear tube. The video then pans up to see the spigot more closely and finally the triple bowler on the stove.

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. :)

#gardening #grapes

A short video showing a grape vine that has grown into the water. The vine is moving around in the waves that can be heard as the break up on the rocks. The shoreline is solid rock.

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.

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.

#gardening #grapes

A half dozen bunches of Thompson seedless grapes sitting grape leaves on a weathered granite rock. They are green to yellow in color. The individual grapes are about 1 cm or 3/8 inch in size around and slightly longer. There is dried moss on the rocks and some lichen.
A vertical photo of a Thompson seedless grape vine that has been taken over by a scrubby mulberry tree that has to regularly be cut back because it is growing at the root base of the grape vine and can't be removed. Part of the grape vine is in the foreground growing on the ground, others parts are within the mulberry, and most of the vine is climbing up a very old Lombardy poplar tree. Vines are at the very top of the photo high up the tree and extend even further beyond the field of view. The edges of a pine tree in the shadows is on the right side. The sky behind the trees and vine is pale smokey blue. Not easily visible near the top of the photo is a large amount of grapes, they are probably 30 ft or almost 9 meters above the ground. They are ripe and look delicious but out of reach.

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.

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

In this photograph, a flock of rusty black birds (Euphagus carolinus) are darting around in the sky above a pine tree.  There were perhaps, hundreds of them, they were preparing to land in the tree, which they did.  They stayed only a few minutes. Maybe they were just taking a quick break.

I never know what to #write in this #introduction thing. Maybe because I don't really know who I am or maybe I'm a mixture of many things.

Anyway, my name is Gustavo and I live in #Jundiaí, the city of #grapes, in #Brazil. I am currently a #PhD student in #biochemistry and the #question I am trying to answer is:

Is it possible to use the knowledge of the #plant #circadianclock to increase the efficiency of #weedmanagement in #sorghum crop?

At the same time I trying to answer what is #time?

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.

A Bunch Of Grapes

Or maybe bunches of grapes? Anyways I was walking through a local vineyard near harvest time. These grapes to my eyes were ready for picking. 
The subject of this image is the beautiful blue/purple color of these grapes growing in a couple of bunches on the grapevine. The grapes are and the bunches are tight hanging off the branch of the vine. 
Also seen in this image are a couple of limbs from the vine, some of the leifs of the vine and the background truly is the ground.

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. See the full image here: #RedWineGrapes-Painterly #BillGallagherPhotography #BuyIntoArt #AYearForArt #Grapes #GrapeVine

Red Wine Grapes - Painterly

 This is an image of some grapes that will soon be pressed into red wine shortly.
The image is framed at the top by a thick limb from an older grape vine. 
There are two bunches in this view. The focus is on the near bunch with a shallow depth of field most other details in the image are soft. 
I enhanced that softness by digitally giving this image a painterly effect.
The image is bright and colorful with beautiful purple grapes and bright green leafs.

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.

Grapes On The Vine

This image is a closeup of a bundle of grapes hanging from a grapevine in Napa Valley.
The image was composed to frame the in focus grapes with out of focus leafs from the vine. 
The foreground leaf is slightly blurry and is showing signs of the coming winter as the edge of the leaf is turning red, yellow and orange.
The grapes themselves are plump and full with a beautiful deep blue color. They are ripe and ready to pick. 
The background in this image is also some out of focus leafs from the vine.

Fascinating bit of news from the intersection of #genetics, #archaeology, #history

#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”

The geometry of the 5 point star, hand drawn.

We start with a circle of radius R. In this circle, we can inscribe a regular pentagon and a regular pentagram, both having the same vertices.

Since any n-polygon can be split into n-2 triangles if we connect one of its vertices to all other non-adjacent vertices via diagonals and the sum of angles in a triangle is 180°, it results the vertex angle of a regular polygon is (n - 2)*180°/n; that is, 108° in the case of a regular pentagon.

The base angle corresponding to a regular pentagon edge is 360°/5=72°.

The circumradii (of length R) to the vertices are perpendicular on the pentagon diagonals/ pentagram edges and split them, as well as the vertex angles, into equal halves.

From the right triangle formed by a circumradius, half a pentagram edge/ pentagon diagonal and the piece of next circumradius perpendicular onto the previous edge (this is also the inradius of the small pentagon whose vertices are the pentagram edge intersections), we get that the third angle is 180°-90°-72°=18° and that the third edge is ri=R*sin(18°).

From the right triangle formed by the small pentagon circumradius, inradius and half an edge, we have that the small circumradius is ri/cos(36°) (where 36° is half the base angle as the inradius bisects it).

Knowing all these values we can compute the coordinates of the points we have the three conic gradients making up the pattern at.
