Ruthann Weeks submitted this great shot of a dragonfly taken on her property in Legal July 31. “Seemed content to let me study it,” she tells us in her email. “It was cool to watch his/her head swivel.”
Lynda Truhn grows concord grapes; the same variety found in stores the end of August or beginning of September. “We usually wait until the first frost before picking, as they are sweeter and juicier,” Truhn said. “I make lots of jelly and we have tried wines, but it is too time consuming.” The grape vines shown in the photo are approximately 18 years old. They are across the front of their home, across the south side. She said she never covers or does anything special to them in the winter. “We also have some newer green ones we started a few years ago and they will be seedless and are producing this year very nicely,” Truhn said, adding her backyard grapes are Pinot Gris and Vitis. “We have started quite a few cuttings for family and friends over the years and sure do enjoy watching the fruits of our labours.”
