Grape buds

The recent spate of warm days has been good for the grape vines. I'm noticing more and more flower buds on the vines as the canes and leaves grow longer and larger. Soon they'll flower (which is almost imperceptible if you don't look closely). Since there wasn't an April freeze this year like there has been in the past few years, the grapes look to be on the fast track. One of the vineyard guys told Ken that there should be a lot of fruit this year.

Flower buds on grape vines look like tiny bunches of grapes. 🍇🍇🍇

Today is market day, which means strawberries. We're going to take a break from asparagus since we still have some in the fridge. I plan to take our recyclables to the recycling center down the road, too. They're overflowing their bins in the garage. A few other projects are on the list for the weekend. We'll see how industrious we feel.


  1. They sure are growing quickly. Wow.

  2. Let’s hope 2022 will be an excellent millésime.

  3. Had no idea those tiny bunches of grapes were the flower buds. The things you learn on the internet!

  4. mitch, looks like a good year, so far. Unless... hail.

    judy, the market is nice is good weather, but it can get a bit crowded. I'm not complaining.

    chm, let's hope!

    emm, ain't it grand? ;)


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
