Salt Lake City, Utah, 2 September 2013 – The arbor grapevines bore fruit this year. Finally. Enough Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to make a half cup of wine. Maybe next year enough for a bottle. I’m sure the record number of days hotter than 95 degrees—over 52 days of temperatures nearing 100 degrees— helped these orbs of tangy sweetness grow to their fullest.
The heat made daytime biking less fun than tangy sweet grapes. Most of my rides this summer of ‘13 were done before sunrise. Looking forward to fall classics.
