I'm very curious as to what you're going to do with the grapes. Are they still "good enough" to eat in the normal fashion or will you be using them in a recipe?

There are a few grapes that I'll have to pick off and throw away but they are still able to be pop in your mouth. But, since they probably should be eaten by today I think I'm going to juice them for some fresh apple/ (from out trees) grape juice.

How about freezing the grapes? They're a perfect snack when eaten frozen!!!! That's what I do when I find them in my store's 50% off produce bin.

Oops. I now see from your July 31st post that you already know about frozen grapes! :) Sorry.
