Is Summer Over?

Drank the last St Lupulin. All of the Palisade peaches are gone. No more Rocky Ford melons to be found. And the Sweet Olathe corn is scarce.

Yep, summer’s over.

Bring on the chili! (Stay tuned … ) And dust off your Dutch oven.

Post Script: Okay, I’m full of crap. Talked to a couple of farmers this week and we have the whole rest of September to enjoy plentiful Rocky Fords … as long as we’re looking at farmer’s markets and not the supermarkets. (Are there regularmarkets out there? JustOKmarkets?) And they’re still shipping some peaches from the Western Slope.
