These grapes? Rubbish.
According to the market anyway.
Too many grapes missing from each bunch. Missing because we had too much rain at the wrong end of the season and some grapes went moldy.
They were removed and this is what was left.
Still plenty of grapes and all perfect.
But not a perfect bunch and so the farmer couldn't sell them.
Which I think is a lot of rubbish.
Not the grapes the way of thinking.
But all was not lost and our family was very grateful to help friend J with her rubbish problem.
Coming form a country where you buy fruit by the kilo and a few non-perfect grapes, a bruised apple, a squishy mandarin is disappointing but not a deal breaker I find the Japanese obsession with agricultural perfection very hard to understand.
Especially when it means so much perfectly edible produce is wasted as it doesn't meet the ridiculously high standards.
The whole thing's a load of rubbish really.
