Got grape juice? If not, you can make your own from your own grape arbor or even wild grapes. I've done both and prefer wild grapes as they require least maintenance. If the vines are too high in the trees, you might need to cut down the vines and wait a year or two for recovery and grapes at a level you can reach.
As a child I thought all radishes were either small spherical reddish spherical things called globe radish, or smallish white cylindrical things called icicle radish. Fortunately then I was rather ignorant in that area.
