    Nice score on the grapes. I think I've lost my concords to Blight, and we were gonna have a boat load of them. Muscadines are still looking good and we've got a bunch of them on as well. but they aren't ready until September.
    Our blueberries, well 2 bushes were loaded this year. twice I picked a gallon off each bush. But our other 7 bushes didn't produce a gallon together. Not sure what went on with them. We froze a bunch, ate them fresh, and wife made some awesome jam with what we got.

    Muscadine grow wild around here and they are everywhere. I love making jelly and jam with them.
    I'm sorry to hear about your concords. Have you tried a soap n vinegar wash to kill the blight? It seems to work well on ours.

    Muscadines grow wild here as well. My plants came from as cutting from my dad's plants. His came from cuttings from his dads plants. I have no clue where they started at before that.
    They are very tasty. Jellies is what we've always used them for. An old friend of mine makes some killer wine with his. I have red and white Muscadines.
    I haven't tried a wash on the concords. never even heard of it before. I'll check them closely tomorrow, but I think they are well past the point of any help this year.

    Ever see a bunch of crows or possums after they eat a bunch of muscadines that fell from the vine and fermented? Staggering around all over the place. Crows flapping their wings trying to fly and can't. Funnier than watching Gerald Ford trying to walk between two walls without running into them, or trying to get on or off Air Force One. I could tell y'all some hilarious stories about how clumsy he was.

    Beo, I have saw crows in Muscadine mode. LOL Pretty funny. Ford was pretty funny to watch as well. He was suppose to be a fall guy in his brief role as Prez. Thus why he choose Nelson Rockafeller as VP.

    cammi, I got my cart before the horse about my concord grapes. Some are blighted, but not all. Gonna hit them tomorrow and see what I get from them. They haven't all turned yet, but enough have to be worth picking. They do taste good, nice sweet and juicy the ones I picked and ate while mowing today. I am happy we'll get something from them.
