Every year, about this time, I have minor heart palpitations about all the work that has to be done in the garden, and in the kitchen. I start daydreaming about vacationing on Pacific islands, or running away with a band of gypsies.
The garden is beyond unruly - and absolutely stunning, right now. Just in a matter of three or four days (and two or three inches of rain), every plant out there has grown heavy with the season's bounty - tomatoes, basil, parsley, carrots, beets, beans, cucumbers, greens, berries - everything is IN, and ready to be picked, canned, frozen, dried, roasted, eaten. Even the honey frames are full!
We give thanks and praises for the abundance, and then we head back to work.
Happy Weekend, friends!
Oh, and if you need some weed whacker work done, I know a motivated fella with reasonable rates.
