The Grapes of Rurikia

Of all the plants in the orchyard the grapes fared best this year.  Their deep established roots kept enough moisture coming to avoid being shocked back into dormancy by the summer drought and the long hot days helped to speed up fruit development to the point where they were ripe well before expected.  This was much to the delight of the deer, raccoons, skunks, and whatever else managed to eat their way through the vines before the harvesting baskets came out.
