50º at noon in high summer! Normally, high 90s would not be unusual. This has been the coolest, wettest summer here in years.

After a month away in Hollywood, I'm back to summer in Colorado. This has been probably the wettest season in years and everything is lush! The grape vines have taken off and actually have a few little grapes (first time so far). The garden that I left behind was virtually untended so the first few days back, I spent sorting out the weeds from the plants. So far the onions & cherry tomatoes have been the most successful crops but I haven't given up on the cabbage and eggplants.
The bees seem have been quite busy. Funny what long shadows they cast. Nice to be home.
