My Sister's Farm

Our whole family loves going to my sister's farm.  For us city folks there are always so many great things to see and do.  It's especially fun on Grape Harvesting day, which we got to experience this weekend.

My brother-in-law and his brother have a couple of acres of grapes that they use for juice and most importantly wine.  Every year at about this time, they invite 20 to 30 friends and family to join in picking and pressing the grapes.  It's something we all look forward to.

For the complete story from picking to juice/wine making check out this You Tube video of the 2009 harvest. Click below or go to

But grapes are just the tip of the iceberg.  Here's what else we saw on the farm.

 And then there was my sister's garden and orchard.  She sure knows how to grow some amazing fruits and veggies.

 And, she's incredibly generous too.  Here's the bounty she shared with us and Fruit Share, who shared it with Siloam Mission.  By the way, these were just the extras - she's already harvested more than that!  Now that's a garden!

 I love my sister, her family and her farm!
