Summer Happenings

Finally the harvests of summer are beginning to arrive. Warmer days are here and with that an abundance and blessings of eggs, honey, flowers, fruits, and vegetables begin to find their way into our home and onto the dinner plate.

The blueberries are in season. We enjoyed our first cucumbers and heirloom tomatoes from the garden this week during dinner. How delicious they taste sliced up with a little sprinkle of salt! Swiss chard and kale are abundant. So abundant that I will begin to blanch and freeze them to use in winter soups. Eggplants are unfurling on stems and herbs are drying in the garage. We even harvested honey this past weekend.
