Wd8 Grapes

October is the month to pick the grapes. It takes all summer for the grapes to grow and then in October all of a sudden there are so many. This year we decided that we will try to make juice from them. The Wd8 team spent and afternoon picking and cleaning the grapes. One of the neighbours then made a little workshop and showed how to turn the grapes into bottles of juice.
