First fruits: homegrown popcorn

The small red cobs of corn are called “red popcorn,” homegrown especially for popping. The popped kernels are small, with a nutty popcorn flavor, and my husband grew a small patch this year as a novelty. It will take a lot of cobs to make a bowl of popcorn! Popcorn is my chiefest consolation for gluten intolerance. 🙂

The small bunch of sweet black grapes are the first fruits of our pinot noir vine. So far, only our jewel-colored harvest and the cooler mornings mark the transition between the sizzling summer I have so enjoyed, and fall.
