End of Summer

Things are starting to calm down a bit here. The family are all gone (though I miss everyone of them!), the Fair is over and the weather has warmed up a bit. Enough to ripen the first melon and the tomatoes in the hoophouse.
The Sungolds are dripping with fruit. We are still worried about winter squash and the outdoor tomatoes and the basil has turned brown from a cold night a couple of days ago,
but the flowers are beautiful. These are annual gaillardias in the cutting garden.

Crazy, Wonderful Summer

It's been a crazy, fun summer. All three of our daughters and all 4 granddaughters have been here off and on. We had a big wedding at the farm and next week is the San Juan County Fair. We did take time off to go with one daughter and friend to camp overnight at Patos Island north of here which is a State Park with a really neat lighthouse. I will have lot of pictures and will try and get them up next week. Life always calms down after Fair Week.
