Prairie Star 19.2
The Prairie Star and LaCrescent were blended, so I only did a ph and TA on the blend which was
ph 3.30 ta* 11 g/L
Marquette 24.2 ph 3.18 ta* 12.5g/L
Frontenac 23.2 ph 3.16 ta 14 g/L
*The TAs may be a bit off, since my Sodium Hydroxide was old.
The prairie star and lacrescent, would have had much higher sugars, but almost half of the prairie star and lacrescent were eaten by birds, and they chose the ripest bunches.

One of the wineries that uses my grapes in their wines, picked the Foch and LaCrescent Sunday (9/5).
The weather was gorgeous. Sunny & dry in the low 70s. Perfect picking conditions.
The Foch was in excellent condition. The lacrescent was not quite as good, but the downy mildew hit those harder. Overall I'm happy with the quality. Next Weekend, more lacrescent, Marquette, Frontenac, and prairie star scheduled to be picked.
Jack helped too.
