Picking Muscadines

Raeley's friend Alli came with us.

A few weekends ago, we went to pick Muscadines in Tremont MS. There is a vineyard in Bull Mountain Bottom. If you are from the area, you'd know exactly where the bottom is. The house on the property was built in the late 1800's. It is a large two story dog trot, modernized, of course!
It didn't take long at all for the 7 of us to collect enough muscadines (Raeley brought a friend). The vines were ripe for picking! The kids had so much fun in the country running, swinging, enjoying a slight break in the rain. 5 gallons later, the rain sprinkling down again, and we decided it was time to head home.

We (ok, not me, the boys) actually discovered muscadines growing in our back woods this fall. Apparently the sheep had been eating the vines in years past, but now the sheep are gone they are growing. Not enough to do anything with, but we may set out some on trellis since Jeff had a section of land cleared. We would like to set out a number of fruit trees, etc this year.
