New Grape Trellis

My husband built two of these to try to tame the grapes that have been out of control for years. We cleared out old lilac bushes and I think we are going to be able to harvest a ton of grapes now! Grape leaves are also a great food source. Just one cup of grape leaves (14 grams) has 77% of your daily value of Vitamin A. Here is a great recipe using grape leaves in a smoothie: 8 large grape leaves 2 frozen bananas 1 cup mango 1 cup pineapple 1 orange enough water to blend delish!

My Son Got Married!

It has been a busy six months or so around here. My son married his best friend Emily this past Saturday. We had the wedding right here at home and it was perfect. The weather was wonderful too! That's me in the red dress. I think this may be the first and only picture of myself I have ever included on the blog. Maybe it's time to make the posts a little more personal and friendly.
