Last year I learned that grapes grow at Dave's family's camp, so we picked them and turned them into jelly... mmm! We decided to do it again this year, but I haven't had time to devote an entire day to jelly-making. So instead we spent part of the day on Saturday with Dave's parents, picking the grapes, and turning them into juice that we've now frozen - when I have some more time, I'll take it out and make the jelly... and maybe wine...
Dave helped pick them - you can't see him though, cause he's wearing camo ;-)
Dave's mom helped too!
Dave's dad manned the juicer, turning the grapes into delicious, rich juice, and then we squeezed the pulp through cheesecloth to get the last bit of liquid out. We ended up with 3 gallons of juice! That'll be a lot of jelly... or wine...
