An appetite for summer....
|Grape juice.....from "The Vineyard at Sycamore Hill"|
When we lived in town we had a little postage-stamp-sized garden. It was about 8' deep by maybe 20' long. Some of you are already thinking "postage-stamp size??" You have to understand, my family had a gi-normous garden outdone only by my grandfather's "truck-patch" which easily exceeded 80' x 150'. When we moved to the country four years ago, before there was even a hint of spring, I took great care in laying out what I thought would be a "sufficient" garden at merely 60' x 40'. Added to that garden was an orchard and several grape vines that were planted in 2011.
