i remember eating muscadines(sp) right of the vine when i was in alabama as a little girl. my grandma would send me out to pick berries so she could make a berry pie.

those berries would be growing all over the ground along side where we walked and played!

thank you grandma for those experiences.

Yes! My grandfather had a 4 acre farm and my parents taught me how to grow fresh veggies! Nothing like vine-ripe tomatoes in the summer.
I'm going to make me some fresh brushetta with some basil, garlic and feta!
