Our first homegrown tomato of the year has ripened!
From the Wall of Tomato.
Yeah, it's a grape tomato.
And there's only one so far.
We let Paul eat it all by himself, rather than splitting it amongst the three of us.
Cuz that's how we roll.

We have quite a few black cap raspberries hiding amongst the wild greenery, and they're ripening.
I fought back the flocks of mosquitos and managed to pick three cups of berries.
Have you got mosquitos like crazy? Ours are unbearable. I saw an article that said the mosquito population in Minnesota has tripled this year. I believe it!
Two jars of black raspberry/jalapeno jam.
Can't wait to try it!

It is Girl of the House's final summer soccer season.
I may have mentioned that a few times?
We're fairly soccer obsessed around here.
She had one goal for the summer - the state tournament.
They're going next weekend.
We have one happy girl.

Four of us took the day and wine hopped.
We hit three wineries: Cannon River Winery in Cannon Falls, Falconer Vineyards in Red Wing, and Maiden Rock Winery and Cidery in Maiden Rock. We had a fabulous time at them all, but I'd have to say Falconer Vineyards knocked our socks off by serving wood fired pizzas on the large deck overlooking their vineyard. It was a perfect way to end the day.

Girl of the House had her final summer soccer home game.
They have the best record in their division and move on to playoffs this weekend.
Then, hopefully, on to state.
But this was the last home game after ten years (TEN!) of summer soccer.
Our girl's grown.

From rainy and cold a month ago to hotter than hades tonight, it's been one heck of a soccer season.

Northfield Temperature scarf, six months into 2013
Other City Temperature scarf.
I'm really enjoying the color changes. I also really like just doing seven days a week - doesn't take too long to catch up.
