It’s summer, and as usual, I’ve disappeared for a while because I am trying to focus on a number of things at once. What makes summer especially busy for me is the added responsibility of managing a garden.
For once, I’m doing a pretty good job of harvesting, consuming, and giving away my fruits and vegetables before things go bad. I’ve made several loaves of zucchini bread,
pots of apple sauce,
and pints of strawberry rhubarb jam.
There’s nothing like fresh broccolini and kale for dinner!
I even had enough energy to pick wild blackberries on my jogging trail.
Now that I’m caught up, I have time to listen to a friend in need.
