Labor Day has come and gone and the official end of summer (September 21st) is rapidly approaching. It has been a hot and humid summer for the most part and I’m not terribly sad to see it go.

There were many beautiful butterflies and dragonflies….
The local corn crop was delicious:

My pole beans are still producing lots of beans. And although the Scarlet Runners have fuzzy exteriors, I actually think I prefer them to the Kentucky Wonders as they seem to be more flavorful and tender. And the scarlet runners are “stringless” and the Kentucky Wonders are not.
And a little gray cat appeared at my door.
And that’s the way it was, Summer 2013.
