|The dew in the fields and woods evaporates and there's a misty haze, but it'll be a warm day and just right for|
gathering the grapes.
|We all help one another at this time. Members of the immediate family come over before we move on to help them with their grape harvest.|
|A brother-in-law takes the grapes over to another brother-in-law's house and we gather there to do some more picking.|
|These days the grapes are put through an electric masher.|
|The juice goes into barrels to ferment before being transferred into glass jars|
|A row of stored jars that will be sterilised ready for use later on.|
|My husband's older cousin who lives in the old village likes to use the old method|
of pressing the grapes.
|The group finishes off gathering the grapes on my sister-in-law's land and I go and help her prepare a meal.|
When all is done we can sit and relax and enjoy a good lunch together.
Thank you all for your interest and comments on my blog posts. I hope you enjoyed this one.
I hope your week is going well. I'm looking forward to our daughter and grandson coming to stay and I'm enjoying time with the local grandchildren during the half term holiday. Our local daughter is hosting a house warming party and it'll be another gathering of family and friends to look forward to at the weekend.
Until next time.....have a good rest of the week.
