O'Meara: Tips on cultivating a Colorado backyard vineyard
To get a backyard vineyard, you need plants that are tough, strong and able to live where the grapes can suffer - like the Front Range.

Irish eyes are smiling on Boulder County whiskey distillers
A dram of BoCo whiskey might please, too. If nothing else, it will serve as a digestif for the heavy meal, which is a purely American confection, as was the American-style holiday, until recently. In Ireland, St. Patrick's Day was traditionally a religious, rather sober day. And the Irish eat either lamb or bacon with their cabbage, instead of corned beef (Interesting side note: Jews and Irish often lived near one another in big American cities during the late-1800s and early-1900s, and the Irish in America bought Jewish corned beef to celebrate St. Patrick's Day).  Full Story

Last summer at Chambers Lake, near Cameron Pass, I found a fascinating native wildflower. Walking along the trail to Lost Lake I noticed a plant that had no green tissue.
