I didn’t realise it was a harvest moon, just felt compelled to get the grapes harvested despite actually just wanting to put my feet up at the end of a busy day.  So I got picking and finished by sunset as the big moon appeared in the sky.  Got 10.4 kg of grapes into a fermentation bin, mixed up 2 gallons of must and went to bed feeling tired and happy, with purple-tinted palms.
