I thought it would be fun to include a pretty fall photo to announce the winner of the herb box giveaway. I looked outside and saw the pretty leaves on these vines and found my photo op. I was curious about what these berries were that looked like small grapes so I bit into one to see if it tasted anything like grapes (I know, not the smartest thing to do but I admit I taste random fruit sometimes). It didn't taste awful but it didn't taste like grapes either.
I spent some time Googling "what are the vines that have berries that look like small grapes" and all I could find were "wild grapes" but I knew the leaves didn't look the same. Well, later that evening I visited my blog friend Maureen at It's All Connected and saw a pretty fall arrangement she made with Virginia Creeper and it looked just like the vine in my yard! I Googled Virginia Creeper and according to Wikipedia the berries "contain oxalic acid, which is moderately toxic to humans". Eek! Well, I'm still here and I feel okay for now.
Okay so after that little story, a random number was selected and the winner of the herb box is:
