Last month we were in a terrible drought with wildfires nearby.
Today, we're still in a drought, but we have had some rain and everything looks a whole lot better. :-)
The fires near us have all been contained or are very close to containment... (High Park, Flagstaff, Hewlett, Arapaho, Squirrel Creek, Waldo Canyon) and the pasture is now more green than brown.
The tomatoes have overgrown their cages and the winter squash is doing really well.
The grass hoppers have hatched this week :-/ There are quite a lot of these cute little buggers hopping around.
I added some old CD's to my plum and peach trees. I remember having several more old CDs before we moved, but apparently I got rid of them and haven't added anymore. I suspect I will need to get a few more since 1 per tree is probably not enough to keep the birds away.
We've had our first harvest a couple of weeks ago... mostly just checking a few things and thinning out the radishes, but still really fun to eat. :-)
I was able to harvest a couple of proper-sized zucchini today though so I think our harvest is ramping up. :-)
