La Vendange (that's French for the grape harvest)

I don't often get to harvest grapes in Saskatoon, but when the opportunity comes along, I'm there! I planned to make grape jelly, but I'm eating these fresh and loving them, despite the seeds. There might not be enough left for jelly!

Thanks to the fruit gleaning co-op Out of Your Tree, I learned about these grapes up for grabs. While I was picking, it occurred to me that there must be grapes all over Saskatoon -- vines planted for show and ornament that produce wonderful fruit -- that aren't being picked. Wouldn't it be great to pick all those grapes and make jars and jars of jelly?

Let no grape go to waste...
