Summer in most of the US this year has been very hot. In case you missed it, the west coast has been unusually cool….the coldest in 30 years I have been told.
Well, this morning I was up early and took a picture of the sun coming up over the vineyard. How pretty! In addition, you can see our fall veggies growing in our new raised beds. The weather has been perfect for getting our kale, radishes, brocolli, chard and lettuce to grow. Hope to eat out of this garden for most of the fall/winter.
We were out in the vineyard and discovered that some of our “Baby” vines have grapes. Normally you don’t want to have any the first 2 years so the plant develops strong roots, but I guess this plant wanted grapes.
We spend the Saturday with our friends Bob and Lisa Wise at “Taste of Sonoma”. They had 150 wineries from Sonoma County along with around 50 restaurants in 4 large tents. The event is to raise money for charity. This year it sold out with 2500 people attending. It was an amazing time and it beats driving to all of those wineries!
