Oops! I Did It Again or All Things In Moderation

This unfortunate bee went head first into the fermenting scuppernong grape and was unable to retreat or either he passed out from drinking the scuppernong wine. Goes to show that even green, organics should be taken in moderation. Greed hurts everyone.
The other bee seems oblivious to the demise of his buddy and keeps searching for his own tap.

Growing Bronze Scuppernongs on Elle's Green Earth

These are the best scuppernongs I've eaten in a long time and they are mine and ripe for the picking.
One of the best things about growing fruit is the ability to go out the back door any time of day and have a snack fresh off of the vine.
Doesn't get more green or organic than that.
The benefits keep adding up for us too.
We get more fresh air and exercise and now with the experts saying the sun is our friend again maybe we'll get the Vitamin D they say we need after all.
