To make grape jelly, she began
three years before by planting vines
along the back fence in her yard.
And now she lets her young grandson
pick purple clumps with his small hands.
With grandma he is never bored,
he helps her cook, and even clean.
She marks the doorway when he stands
to check his growth, just like the plants.
