Thinking of Muscadine Jellies and Cobblers on an Early Sunday Morning

I took an early morning Sunday walk into the woods this morning. The shaded landscape was coated with a cool and moist blanket from the nourishing rains the evening before. From my trek into the woods I learned this year the wild muscadine crop in Itawamba County is spectacular. Pictured above is a pod of Itawamba County muscadines ripening on the vine promising a treat of sweet muscadine jellies and crispy buttered cobblers just a few weeks later.

I'd love to use your muscadine photograph for our radio show's Web site, Gardening in a Minute. August's featured plant of the month is the muscadine grape, and this is one of the best photos I've seen. -- Jennifer McIntyre, web coordinator for "Gardening in a Minute", UF/IFAS Center for Landscape Conservation and Ecology.

Jennifer, you have my permission. The scene was shot during early morning after a nice rain the evening before.
