It’s been a gorgeous summer week here, full of all the good things this season offers — sunshine, cool breezy evenings, blooms everywhere, and meals made with homegrown produce: the best! But I am so behind in many little things, since jam making and weeding have become priorities. Then again, being outdoors as the sun’s rays warm your shoulders is such a pleasure when one dares to think back just a few months ago and all the snow and ice — the ice! — of winter. No, we must savor these days in each and every way, as they are fleeting. And if you have no garden of your own, check out a local pick-your-own farm. A morning full of picking is great fun and also humbling because those berry buckets take a long time to fill. 🙂 Have a lovely weekend!!
