A Grape Photo from the Greek Hovel

It is not just the olives that are getting bigger and bigger but also the grapes. A rather untrained vine winds its way across a random set of wires either side of the Greek Hovel.

I fear that when the grapes are ready in early August I shall not be there to enjoy them as they are large, sweet and incredibly "more-ish".

They will instead provide nourishment for large wasps who drink and drink grape juice which is slowly fermenting inside the grape. My absence will thus create a generation of totally inebriated wasps. For as you can see below it is looking good for the grape harvest 2016
