The muscadines are looking great!  So far, we've avoided any of the big winds we had last year.  The muscadines are starting to turn color.  We're now going into a really hot spell with limited precipitation in the forecast...just the way the muscadines like it, as long as the 100+ degree temperatures don't last very long.  We're getting prepped with harvest in mind, securing posts and plants as the muscadines become more ripe and heavy.  Football talk, arts organizations' season offerings, and back-to-school sales all remind us that muscadine harvest is approaching!
