Harvest Season Fast Approaches

The muscadine grapes are growing at Blog Cabin 2013 — and harvest season fast approaches! We thought our most die-hard fans would love to see a snapshot of the mini vineyard that’s climbing its way up and around the reclaimed wood pergola. Let’s chat: If you won the home, what would you do with your grape harvest? Make jellies and jams? Produce fine wines? Throw them in the juicer, perhaps? Set up a farm stand in the front yard and sell them by the peck?

Thanks to project manager Dylan Eastman for sending in this great photo! And thanks to our friends at the Made + Remade blog for posting this timely how-to. If you don’t win Blog Cabin 2013, you can grow your own muscadine grapes and enjoy a bountiful harvest. Enjoy!

  7. Found my answer: In a video from 2012 Blog cabin drawing. They say the winner is called the same day that they pick them. So exciting.

  10. I'm from Up North Michigan Wine Country
    I'd make complimentary HGTV Coastal wine for the Scripps Network.
    In the hope that I'd be a great Vintner and a Viticulturist is willing to travel. Cant forget the Pecans involvement somehow and SEAFOOD!!
