That's more like it

The grapes are starting to look like, well, grapes. Our heat wave has been good for the vineyards, I think. I know our tomatoes and summer squash are enjoying the weather, even if we are not sleeping all that well. Today is supposed to be a little cooler, but it feels more humid than it's been. Trade-off.

The flowers are long gone and the grapes are getting bigger.

I took Tasha out with me on this walk. We found one of the guys that works in the vines, out early to take advantage of the cooler morning air. Tasha ran right up to him and let him rub her belly. So different from Callie. It took years for her to get close the people who work out there. So far, Tasha loves running up and down between the rows of vines, it's good exercise and it uses up some of her puppy energy. And that's a good thing.


  1. I think Tasha's energy and youth are great for you to have around the house (and vineyards). Maybe she'll make friends with all the growers and they'll give you free wine (or grapes).

  2. How different each pup is. Tasha sounds as though she is going to be a very friendly girl. My last two Labs were very friendly, even to the extent of trying to get into any car with an open door - just to say hello, of course !

  3. I am deeply saddened for your loss. Reading your blogs I know how much you loved that sweet little animal.

  4. mitch, she already has, and they won't. Damn.

    coppa's girl, Callie loved people, but on her own terms.

    anon, thank you.


Tell me what you think!
