    So, I spent two hours collecting grapes.

    Another who knows how long cleaning them.

    Then running them through the strainer to get the liquid.

    By then the day was over so I put the juice in the fridge in the camper.

    The power went out. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So close to being canned. A whole day's work lost. [​IMG]

    Opened the container this morning and it popped. Smells like wine already.....

    And before you get any ideas - no I can't make it into wine.

    I'll turn it into frozen juice bars for the chickens for during the winter. [​IMG]

    I think I would cry... seriously.

    Our fridge went out yesterday... thankfully we had been out of town for a couple days and I hadn't made it to the store yet. Quite a few things lost, but stuff we could do without anyway [​IMG]

    Oh no grape horror stories please!! I'm going to get mine tomorrow. [​IMG]

    Last year I processed about 22 meaties and quartered them, vacuum sealed them and all. The in-laws drove up (less than a one hour drive) to spend the weekend in our yard in thier camper and my freezer got unplugged. I did cry. [​IMG]

    Quote:I WOULD cry over that. Lost meaties would hurt more than lost grape harvest.
