Salad and grapes

Today we harvested our first grapes and we had a wonderful salad:

I discovered today that one of our grape vines has RED grapes.   I know I planted 3 red and 3 green grape vines, but in previous years we got only green grapes.  One of the vines that had not been doing well for years FINALLY took off, grew like crazy and here we are with almost red grapes.   I harvested them a little early because I noticed the birds going after the grapes and they already tasted delicious.
And we’re finally having lots of salad ingredients again.  Out of nowhere (self seeded from last year) came the arugula in one of our raised beds.  Not hot at all, but very tasty.  The large green leaves are probably perpetual spinach (living up to its name).  Our kale must be perpetual too because it’s at least a year old.  We added a few nasturtium leaves (have to plant more, love the peppery taste), onion greens, beets and tomatoes.
The hot June left us with next to no salad greens, but now that it’s been cloudy a lot (still no rain), everything recovered and is growing like crazy.
