My dad died a few years back and I had to start doing the “man’s job” around her house.
One of the jobs I like to do is taking care of the trees and grape wines in the fall and spring. I started slowly and with fear not to ruin everything, but after reading about it, I got confident that I can do a good job.
Every year the grape wines are looking better and I feel so proud about it. You can see in the photos how good they look. All they need now is warm weather. We will make juice. We will mix apples and grapes and make juice for the winter.
Until the grapes are ready I am enjoying the view.

They’re looking lovely
Those grapes look great. Just like a vineyard!
They look nice!
Beautiful photos! I love looking at pictures of hanging grape clusters. Top one is perfect. 🙂 You’re doing a great job.
Gorgeous! You are a better vine manager than I am. Our never looked that good. 🙂
The grapes look nice!
Those are beautiful. The feminist in me had a very knee-jerk reaction to “man’s job”, but you put it in quotes, haha.
Thank you. 😁
They look gorgeous. Beautiful click
Mine are tiny- any advice?
I am afraid to give advice since I am not an expert. All I can say is that I cut a lot this year in the spring, more than any year. We have lots of grapes and shadow. Also, my mom takes care through the summer cutting the vines that don’t have grapes or are too long.
Okay, that helps, thank you! Our grapes tasted delicious, they were just pea-sized, lol
The grapes look splendid!
It is indeed a beautiful view!! Well done!!
Awesome job! Sometimes a woman has to do a man’s job.
Looks beautiful. Have you thought of making wine?
Thank you. We used to make till 5-6 years ago.
No wonder you are proud ! – you are doing so well with those luscious grapes. 🙂
They do seem to be flourishing. I’m sorry you lost your dad – I am sure he’d be proud of what you’re achieving.
Thank you. He would
Visually exquisite, stunning in their multitudes!
If you’re interested, and you’re a little ambitious, after you’ve harvest the fruit, collect the leaves for cooking delicious Greek and Near Eastern specialties.
Thank you. We are doing that too.
Perfect imagery for your inspiring share.❤
They look great too.
You sure did take care of everything so well. This beautiful grapes are telling the story of your hard work.
What kind of grapes are they, and what sort of wi e do they make, if you’ve ever made it?
They taste a little like strawberry. We made red wine until 5-6 years ago.
Thank you. What an interesting part of your life!
They look AMAZING!
Thank you for your
Woww looks amazing !
I know nothing of growing grapes but they look pretty damn fine to me! I am sure your Dad would be very proud 🙂
I hope they taste as fantastic as they look!
They need a little bit more time to get sweeter
Well, I hope they sweeten to perfection.
Those grapes looks very beautiful.
Table grapes or wine grapes? Lovely indeed to see fruits of your soon to harvest.

Beautiful grapes – I wish mine looked as good as that!!
Hello, I have now nominated you for the (Mystery Blogger Award )😉
Thank you for your nomination.
These grape/vine shots…the best. The photographer makes everything stand out.
Stellar photos Jeff! You nailed it on the wine bar search, first priority… well that and good restaurants when I know we’ll be going to a certain city. Noting the Helsinki wine bar, we’re hoping to get there this year.Organic wine
Looks beautiful ❤
Great work! I am publishing a series on the amazing development of grapevines over the seasons this year. Maybe you are interested in sitting comfortably and enjoying the views 🤩. Look for it on my site.
What a gorgeous view! Great work caring for the vines, I hope the resultant juice (and wine?) is just as gorgeous!
Love the photos — this is the first year I’ve ever tried home grown grapes and they made amazing juice (which I made jelly with) but I can see cut with the apple juice how it would make a lovely drink.
