II, table

A few days ago, my second cousin called and said that most of his grapes were ripe and had been opened to the public. He told me to have time to eat. Hearing this, I quickly said: that is a must. I feel a little drooping when I think of the clusters of sweet and sour grapes every year. The vineyard of the second cousin’s family is very large, named Yumeiren vineyard, with a planting area of more than 800 mu and a wide variety of varieties. It adopts the planting method of bagging to prevent insects, without pesticide residues, and is green and healthy. And when the grapes are fully ripe, they are open to everyone just like the supermarket. People can choose and pick them at will. The difference is that they can taste them for free. But the price is slightly higher than that in the market, and the grapes are much more delicious than those in other places. Because my second cousin is very busy and has no time to accompany me, and I like to pick grapes by myself. One is to experience the process of labor, and the other is to enjoy the abundance full of fruits, the third is the freshness from picking to tasting the sweet grapes. I took off my high heels and put on flats, and entered the garden like other people who bought grapes. Walking under the grape shelf, there are grape leaves passing over the head from time to time, and there are round, green, purple and red grapes hanging from time to time blocking the way. Whenever you encounter it, you can either reach out and take it off, or put your head aside to let it go. Put it in the garden, in addition to feeling cool, it is full of grapes. There are varieties such as Black Pearl, giant rose, Jufeng, golden finger, beauty finger, Hei Ti, hongti, seedless white chicken heart, etc. I picked it as I wished, as if I had entered a deserted world. Shuttling under the grape shelf, I don’t know where is the edge and where is the boundary, just like a maze. Although I began to feel cool, after all, the temperature of more than 30 degrees, after a while, the silk dress I wore, the front heart and back were soaked with sweat, tightly attached to the skin, and there are still mosquito bites on the exposed legs. But I still couldn’t help peeling off the skin of a bunch of purple grapes with my hand. I quickly put the green and crystal transparent pulp into my mouth, sipped it, chewed it, and there was a cold silk, sour, the sweet smell immediately touched my heart. I was picking and tasting, wiping sweat while scratching. I couldn’t imagine how my second cousin and workers stayed in the garden all day and kept busy. So far, from the bottom of my heart, I am proud of my second cousin’s success today. Not? His success was praised by many people, and also supported and commended by provincial and municipal leaders. Work hard and gain. Every time when grapes are ripe, there are an endless stream of people buying grapes in the garden. Some of them pick and eat home by themselves, and more of them are small merchants and vendors. Because there were too many people buying grapes, the second cousin invited several workers who had been managing this garden to go to the exit of the vineyard, weigh the grapes of the people who bought grapes in the garden, and then pay at the designated place. At this time, my second cousin’s family were all busy, and that happy mood could be seen from the full smile. However, who knows how much effort and sweat have been paid behind the joy. In fact, my second cousin grew up with me when he was young. Every Sunday and holiday, I went to my grandma’s house to study and play crazily with my second cousin. My second cousin was a naughty guy with average academic performance. He was often beaten by his uncle and aunt because of absenteeism. Every time he was beaten, he hurriedly drilled into grandma’s arms, as if grandma was his protective umbrella and life-saving symbol. Sometimes grandma would say: if you are not obedient or learn well, I will not be able to save you in the future. However, my second cousin was very kind to me. When he met delicious food, he put it in my bowl and took it for more than half a hundred years. He still couldn’t forget me if he had good things. Just when I graduated from junior high school at an ignorant age, I would never go to school any more. It was useless to let the family persuade me. At that time, it was difficult to find a job, and he couldn’t do farm work, so he stayed at home and made troubles all day long. There was no way for his uncle to send him to the army. When he was transferred from the army, his second cousin was no longer an ignorant child. He became a polite, considerate and graceful filial teacher. It seems that the big melting pot of troops is really a good place to train people. Soon the second cousin got married and had children, and he became a backbone in the plate factory founded by his uncle. He never complained about hardship and tiredness, and his life was full of flavor, however, the business of the plate factory only lasted for more than ten years and then went bankrupt. The second cousin had to find a way out everywhere for the sake of the family’s life. If you want to re-establish other factories, you have no funds in your hand. I dare not use the only 9000 yuan in my pocket. Results in city not far, first to 30,000 yuan contract under the 100 mu land. Was second cousin find this relatives borrow some that relatives borrow some at long last 30,000 yuan contract fee we have. Land is contracted well, just don’t know what to plant good, if grow food crops problems no to what month can arrears paid, and every year to pay 30,000 yuan contract fee. At this time, a friend reminded him that it would be better to plant grapes for a long time, but the first two years were all invested, and there was almost no income, so the second cousin should consider it clearly. My second cousin decided to plant grapes after several days of consideration. But where does the capital come from? This is a big problem. Then were the planting season, so, second cousin ask for help credited 20,000 dollars-, to Shandong bought grape seedlings, Gu some workers, all day and workers with planting, scaffolding, carefully management. In the first two years, from the winding Brown grape vines, they spit out fluffy yellowish buds, and then slowly grow tender leaves until the leaves change from bronze to dark green, my second cousin took this process into his mind and only hoped to blossom and bear fruit as soon as possible. In fact, in the second year, you can see some small beige flowers in the layers of leaves, just because of the wind and rain that year, the flowers are too delicate, or too fragile, most of them fell to the ground early. Looking at those little flowers falling to the ground, my second cousin felt a little regret and melancholy in his heart. After a period of time, few green grapes, the size of soybean, can be seen in the leaves. However, they were finally knocked down by wind and rain, and none of the grapes grew. My second cousin felt a little depressed, but there was nothing to do. My second cousin put all his hopes on the third year. After winter, I took the workers to prepare the soil, fertilize and weed, and also wiped out those useless forks. Under the moisture of spring rains one after another, grapes soon grew dense and vigorous leaves. After another spring rain, my second cousin went into the vineyard early in the morning and saw thousands of small beige flowers appearing among a large area of wet leaves. Those small flowers covered the branches, some of them still had small drops of water on their heads, which decorated the whole vineyard with splendid fragrance under the rising sunshine. From then on, those little butterflies and bees also flew from all directions, just like rushing to a feast, collecting wisps of fragrance, sucking the sweet silk, and busy all day long, it seems to compete with my second cousin and the workers. While the little bee also made a buzzing sound of challenge from time to time, as if playing a victory waltz; The little butterfly was even more audacious, flying around everyone smartly and falling on her shoulders from time to time, is it a congratulations to my second cousin’s success? No one knows. In a word, grapes were hanging all over the branches this year, and the result that my second cousin had been hoping to see finally came true. The joyful mood hung high on her eyebrows, and even her 80-year-old grandmother laughed her eyes into a thread, because grandma also likes eating grapes, grapes don’t need to be chewed hard for grandma who has few teeth. However, the 88-year-old grandmother left forever three years ago. I hope she has grapes to eat in heaven and everything will be fine. Over the past ten years, my second cousin has been working hard constantly, expanding from the original vineyard of more than 100 mu to today’s vineyard of more than 800 mu, and developing from the first middle variety of junior high school to more than a dozen varieties, the hardship may only be experienced by people. Besides the sweet and delicious grapes, the second cousin’s family also has the Yumeiren wine brewed by him with various kinds of grapes, which is a favorite product of people. Ha ha, for me, who likes eating grapes most, I am satisfied again, look! The big and small bags of grapes are enough for me to eat for a while. I hope I can bring some wine that I am still brewing next time. Like (prose editor: Jiangnan wind) the snow in spring
