This is an up-close and personal view of the grapevine in our backyard in Greenpoint. While last year’s season yielded no grapes as a result of overzealous pruning on the part of Taylor, this year’s crop promises to be bountiful. August was harvest in 2005, so be sure to stop by the shop in the latter part of the month for samples, and keep eyes peeled for jam sessions. We are planning on putting up spiced grapes and pickled grapes, two recipes that succeeded from the great pickle of 2005.
