We have two different varieties of grapes...one is Green Thompson Seedless and the one shown is Concord. It looks like it is going to be a good harvest again, just as it was last year. I hope some jelly and other goodies will be made from them, once they ripen!

Yesterday I harvested my sweet basil plant and put the leaves in the dehydrator. This morning, I decided to move them out onto the counter to air dry. It will save money and be more fragrant.
With basil, so far, I have Varigated Sage and Parsley drying. Yet to come...Rosemary, Thyme and Oregeno. As each batch is dry, I will put them in glass jars and save for cooking. If I get an abundance, I would love to give some as gifts.

We have a wild plum tree that is either two trees growing together or two varieties in one. Yesterday I picked the sweet yellow blush variety from it. Yum! So sweet! The dark purple/black ones were nearly over-ripe and are being enjoyed by the birds and deer. The larger plums in the bowl are from a different tree. There weren't many ripe ones on it yet.
