The fruits of a long hot summer are coming to the markets now. I bought some green grapes today and they were like nectar .... sweet as honey and with a nice crisp snap. I was attracted by the gold/yellow color that they get this time of year. In my youth I remember hitchhiking to Sequoia National Park and getting dropped off somewhere outside of Fresno...spent several hours waiting for a ride but we were near some grape vines that had incredibly sweet fruit. Was almost disappointed when we got a ride.
