Look how green it is at the end of the summer in an Arkansas September, thanks to abundant rainfall the past six weeks or so.  Keeping up with grass control in the vineyard has been a bear, particularly when portions of the vineyard were too wet to mow.   Now we are cool and dry, with lows about 50 degrees Fahrenheit this week and highs near 80.  But best of all, we have some ripe muscadines!  The photos on our gallery show muscadine love by our family and friends!  Eating them fresh off the vine is a big treat.  Then they make their way home with enough to eat for meals or prepare jams, jellies, and cobblers.  Wine- and juice-making friends usually wait for the Carlos and Noble that are ripening more with each passing day!
