Feeling like…

…. a room without a roof.”


This might sound like an exaggeration, but the first (as yet green) grapes landing in the kitchen is a very special “Happy” moment.

It is way too early to start measuring sugar levels. I just took home some of what I had cut to the ground, as part of the ‘halfing’/’halbieren’ of the grape bunches.

I am told there is lots of good stuff with names impossible to spell in the pips and the skin.  It tends to go into expensive skin treatments, and here it was sitting on the ground in front of me.  I had read about “verjuice” on the internet and here it is, mixed in with fresh herbs, tasting delicious on various salads. halbierte trauben am boden photo 2 photo 4
