I've also started picking and eating my Florida Fry muscadines off of the play fort this week. These are some exceptionally delicious grapes. Not only are they huge, but the flavor is amazing. They have thick skins, four to five seeds each, and are bursting with juice. I don't eat the skins, but I guess they could be called 'technically edible'. They're definitely worth eating, even though there's a fair amount of spitting involved. The Florida Fry muscadines are big and green, with a slight bronze sheen. The Supreme and Darlene grapevines I planted didn't put on any fruit this year, but they've grown like crazy, almost completely covering the play fort. I hope to be able to compare all three side by side next year.
This weekend I finally was able to finish rigging up the irrigation system inside the greenhouse. It actually was pretty easy, once I finally had all the pieces. Earlier this year I ran a 3/4-inch PVC water line to the greenhouse. I put together a PVC manifold, and rigged up some inline sprinkler valves, and then attached DIG drip irrigation hose. I wired all the valves to a programmable timer, so now all my tropicals will get watered every day without me having to drag hoses around. I'm really getting spoiled to not having to water plants by hand anymore. If the electronic timer works out, I may have to fully automate all of my irrigation lines.
