Walking home the other day I spotted the first tiny grapes growing on a lush green vine. Spring has been very rainy this year, and the vines and plants seem to be loving it! Below this grape vine the owners had planted fava bean plants very early this spring, which is pretty common in the area. I’ve enjoyed watching the plants growing and the long bean pods forming. Then one day they’re gone! Probably to make a delicious dish of pasta e fave. Yum! It’s fascinating to watch out how locals use such small terraces of land to produce so much throughout the year. I dream of having my own small plot of land on the Amalfi Coast one day!
