A crate containing grape skins, pulp, and seeds known as pomace, in the aftermath of pressing the grapes at the Opolo winery in Paso Robles, California.

Great photo for the prompt! Do they use it for anything (fertilizer?) afterward?

Amy, I read that this is the stuff use to make grappa. It is also used for fodder, fertilizer and to produce a natural dye. I should have added this explanation to the photo but I'm being very lazy this morning.

I agree with Kim too. :)

Grappa and fertilizer! Now I understand why I don't like grappa :) Great choice for this week's theme!

Have a great weekend Maria!
