“June Gloom” has lifted and summer is nigh. The garden is growing right before my very eyes. There are loads of strawberries, blueberries (over 6 lbs in the fridge – that’s a whole lotta little berries!) and apricots (was a good year!) to “deal” with. Certainly a “good” problem to have. With rising food prices, homesteads of every shape and size are gearing up for the summer onslaught!
Baskets of beans, the first cukes, peppers and summer squashes were harvested this week and tomatoes are not far behind – can hardly wait! Basil beds are filling in and the mints too! Been waiting months to whip up some fresh tabouli and summer pasta. Man, I am getting hungry! That reminds me, I really should get back one of our reader’s favorite “Weekly Meal Wrap Ups.” Scribble that down on my “to do list.”
My camera can barely keep up with all the wonderful sights that make up our little homestead here in the city. I can’t help but be filled with simple content and feel how blessed we are to have such bounty and beauty surround us.
I’m going to borrow from a line from one of my favorite blogger (love your recent pos,t btw!)
“And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.” 1 Timothy 6:8
Care to share your summer blessings?
Happy summer ya’ll!
